Description:The Pronunciation lexicon of British place names, surnames and first names was produced by the University of Poitiers (France) through a funding from ELRA in the framework of the European Commission project LRsP&P (Language Resources Production & Packaging - LE4-8335). This lexicon is an SGML-encoded database of British proper names. All entries belong to one or several of the following categories: place-names (a quasi-exhaustive list of toponyms from England, Scotland and Wales), and surnames or first names (a selection of names based on an extensive survey of bibliographic sources in the field of British onomastics combined with lists compiled by the author of this lexicon). The database is composed of 160,000 entries, breaking down as follows:Place-names Number of entries Number of transcriptions England 31,635 44,969 Wales 5,085 9,941 Scotland 15,363 20,397 Total 1 52,083 75,307 Surnames 92,456 115,934 First names 15,461 20,803 Total 2 107,917 136,737 Total 1+2 160,000 212,044 All phonemic transcriptions in the database are based on the SAMPA phonetic alphabet
