Dutch Pronunciation Examples - A Rough Translation

A rough translation of the examples on The Dutch Pronunciation Page
A single slash / divides between words; a double slash // divides between meanings
The words in bold are more common.
Dutch nouns take either 'de' click to hear 2 or 'het' click to hear 2 as the definite article ('the.') 'Het' is often shortened to 't click to hear - note the sound change from 'short E' to 'voiceless E.' A few Dutch nouns can take either 'de' or 'het,' often with a change of meaning. When an English word can be either a noun or an adjective, I have sometimes indicated a noun with 'a.' This may look like a wrong translation.
