Spelling and Pronunciation
Dutch spelling is much more systematic than, for instance, English spelling. There are some rules to learn, but once you know them they are easy to apply. The pronunciation of Dutch may occasionally appear difficult, especially with certain vowel sounds, but as with spelling, the rules for pronunciation are quite systematic.
Spelling and pronunciation go hand in hand, and in this explanation the two are generally discussed together.
In the explanation sounds are put in between //. This is a linguistic convention. Letters are put between <>. Words that are grammatically incorrect are preceded by *.
