I'm seeking an openly-licensed dictionary that contains for every word the IPA transcription.

Is such a resource available for English?

The CMU Dict is available online HERE. It doesn't use the IPA, but it uses Arpabet link to wikipedia here. You could easily convert it from arpabet to IPA. Also, since language is continuously changing it would be impossible to get 'every word'.



Here is a word-IPA mapping list converted from cmudict: menelik3/cmudict-ipa, and it also contains the brown-frequency-list-with-ipa.txt based on the most frequent 33862 words by the Brown Corpus.
