How to differentiate between the sound of de and det?

De (they) = dee (as when you say the letter D, which rhymes with sea)

Det (it) = de' (like pronuncing only "de" of detriment)

Thanks Gry! I for some reason started out thinking i had heard 'de' as /dei/ but very short and the vowel clipped, but the past couple days have been hearing /di/ as you just explained.. wasnt sure if i was going crazy!
