Most pronunciation lexica for speech synthesis in English take no account of morphology. Here we demonstrate the benefits of including a morphological breakdown in the transcription. These include maintaining consistency, developing the symbol set and providing the environmental description for allophones and phonetic variables. Our approach does not use a full morphological generator, but includes morphological boundaries in the lexicon.
