Blintzes

Hi. This may seem like a strange request, but please could someone tell me how to pronounce blintzes. (if you type the word phonetically that will help me greatly!) thanks
I am researching the difference between blinis and blintzes.

It's pronounced like its spelled I guess. Think of it like the way you would normally pronounce the word blitz (but with an n in it) so blintz for one and add "es" for several pronounce the "es" as you would the word "is" at the end. Does this help?

Here, try this one.

Dictionary, Encyclopedia and Thesaurus - The Free Dictionary

You'll have to type in "blintz" and search, but there are two small flags on the upper left, under the header.

If you click on the American flag, you'll hear the American pronunciation, likewise, the British flag will sound their pronunciation

Thanks Zhizara - I've bookmarked The Free Dictionary - it's great. And now I can pronounce blintzes properly!
