Dutch term or phrase: Groetjes uit Nederland (transliteration)
What's the difference between "Groetjes uit Nederland" and "Grootjes out Naederland"?

What's the transliteration/phonetic translation of this phrase?

Dank U!

Groetjes uit Nederland
Explanation:
"Groetjes uit Nederland" is the correct spelling. It means "greetings from the Netherlands".
The other one is intended as a phonetic transcription, I think.
But if you want to pronounce it, try this:
khroo-tyuhs uit Nay-duhr-lahnd.
(with kh the Dutch throat sound, similar to 'ch' in Bach and the Scottish 'loch'; 'ui' a diphthong, can be approximated by pronouncing it as eh-u)

I\'m sorry, I can\'t type IPA here and can\'t find a website with pronunciation of this sentence either. (There is however

The \'e\' \'tjes\' is pronounced as a schwa sound, like the \'uh\' in the English \'the\'. The \'j\' is like the \'y\' in you. So, \'tjes\' makes tyuhs in English phonetics.

Yes, it is almost like \'chess\', except that the \'e\' is more like the \'e\' in \'oven\', an \'uh\' sound, unlike the clear \'eh\' sound in \'chess\'.
