List of Portuguese Words (inc. IPA, Part of Speech and Stats)

For anyone who is interested, I scrape this website "Dicionário Fonético" for Portuguese words by using the advanced search and Python programming language. There are 63,161 words in total with their part of speech and IPA. I used the IPA for Rio de Janerio (standard). If anyone is interested in other IPA, let me know and I will post it for you. There are IPA in standard and non-standard for Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Maputo, Lisboa, Luanda, and Díli.

This is a list of the number of words for each part of speech:
