Push the arrow button to hear the pronunciation. You might have to increase the volume of you computer or other device, some recordings are rather soft.

The links take you to WikiWoordenboek the Dutch wiktionary.
There you can look at any plurals or diminutives.
Look under "Afgeleide begrippen" (derived terms) and follow the links. Anything you recognize? (There are usually translations available)
If necessary use the interwiki link to the English wiktionary for clarification.

The wiktionaries are another way to study a language!
