This paper describes a method how to generate word sets for the study of phonetic features in various contexts and shows statistical properties of the generated word sets. Two word sets are generated so as to contain as many kinds of VCVs and CVCs in as few words as possible. In addition, these sets are phonetically balanced by considering the entropy for VCVs and CVCs. The words are selected from 42,859 words on a Japanese dictionary phonetically described. The dictionary contains 44,000 different entry words when the homophones are counted as one word.
