I'm searching any good database about German words (substantives currently, but a more comprehensible database will go down well also), with, almost, the following information:

  • Word name: in nomative Singular.
  • natural/grammatical genre
  • inflections: in plural, dative plural and genitive singular (or n-declination).
  • pronunciation: pronunciation and hyphenation with IPA.

Does you know any free database with these characteristics? meet this requirements (except pronunciation), and moreover has some kind of API:

But I haven't seen any description of this API in any point of You can only have access of these lists by means of the web page.

I should to check wiktionary, because I think it is a very incomplete dictionary, and for my purposes it isn't enough. Moreover, I need a database that can be treated mechanically by means of an algorithm, and I've a little experience processing wikis, and wikis isn't exactly well databases. – Peregring-lk Apr 23 '13 at 8:36

The German Wiktionary offers all information you require.

Let's for example take the substantive dog. The Wiktionary entry for dog gives us:

  • Word name: Hund
  • natural/grammatical genre: m
  • inflections
    • in plural: die Hunde
    • dative plural: den Hunden
    • genitive singular: des Hunds, des Hundes
  • pronunciation: [hʊnt], Plural: [ˈhʊndə] (audio samples available)
  • hyphenation: Hund, Plural: Hun·de
