Subject: English Word Stress Database

Regarding query:

There have been some interesting responses concerning a searchable English
word stress database. People may find the following to be useful:

On-line English Dictionary, searchable by syllable count, stress pattern
and other features:

The equivalent 'raw' file of the preceding:



Teschner, Richard V. & M. Stanley Whitely (2004). Pronouncing English: A
Stress-Based Approach with CD-Rom. Washington: Georgetown University Press.

I'm sure any feedback on these sites would be appreciated by their
creators, as well as being of interest to myself. Many thanks to everyone
who emailed me these suggestions.
