This paper describes the process of developing flashcards for the most frequently used words in Icelandic. The process involves utilising currently available opensource 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 part­of­speech 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.
