First names and their Dutch and Frisian pronounciations

Dataset

Description

During the FAME project a dataset was constructed with first names of inhabitants of the province of Friesland in 2015. The dataset was created for the purpose of adding this set to the pronunciation dictionary of the Frisian-Dutch speech recognizer. A list of first names of inhabitants of Friesland (in 2015) was requested from the Meertens Institute. The currentdata set only contains the first names that have a frequency of occurrence >5. It lists the name and possible pronunciation(s), i.e. all names have the Dutch pronunciation and when the Frisian one deviates, the Frisian one(s) is/are added as well. The dataset has a total of 12663 entries.
