This paper describes the process of developing flashcards for the most frequently used words in Icelandic. The process involves utilising currently available open-source online databases, the Tagged Icelandic Corpus, MÍM, and the Database of Modern Icelandic Inflection, BÍN, to extract a list of the most frequently used words, their part-of-speech tags, and inflectional forms. This was combined with newly developed language technology tools for Icelandic to generate phonetic and audio transcriptions of the words. The final product is a combination of printable flashcards and digital flashcards which are easily accessible through smart devices.
