Description The book describes the pronunciation of Dutch from the perspective of a Czech speaker. It classifies Dutch among Germanic languages, explains its European varieties, and compares the Dutch and Czech sounds. It serves as a guide for Dutch students, where they can learn how to pronounce individual voices correctly, not to confuse them with Czech ones, and how to pronounce voices in context. An important part is also a treatise on the articulation bases of both languages, which explains how the Dutch vocabulary is set up and how they move by comparing the frequencies of the sounds.
