You know how you read in a dictionary following every word is broken up into its syllables with special characters (from memory - I think). Well since I'm thinking of keeping a list of words, maybe at the very lest, a list of hard to pronounce words. I want to learn this pronunciation (I'll call it) language.
I don't know if there is one for every language or not, but I was wondering if anyone who knows could direct me to a webpage, book, etc. So I can create my own "pronunciations" for words instead of looking each one up in a dictionary.

Do you mean a special script for indicating pronunciation? In that case, the best thing to use is the IPA.
And this is how it applies to French:
Wiktionary will show you the IPA for each French word, eg.
If you want to type them in yourself, it might be useful to learn X-SAMPA
