I am looking for primary data for generating accentual verse in English.

I imagine that this would be, basically, a corpus of English words where the annotations associated with each entry include syllabication (i.e. the splitting of the word into syllables) and accentuation (i.e. the marking those syllables that are accented) information.

I have not been able to find such data, but I think this may be largely due to my not knowing the right terminology for an effective online search. I would appreciate any pointers.
