You don't necessarily have to say 'de' twice in my opinion. In Dutch you could also just say: De hond en kat slapen samen in een mandje. As an answer I gave: The dog and cat (so without a second 'the') ...... etc. I would say that would be correct as well.

Does anyone know a Dutch or Dutch-English dictionary that handles diminuitives? The ones I've tried so far either remove the diminutive suffix or simply fail to recognize a dimnuitive Dutch word. I'm primarily interested in getting the spelling right, since it seems that simply suffixing '-je' isn't always the correct way to form a diminutive in Dutch.

en.wiktionary.com . Each Dutch entry has meta information attached to it including the diminutive form (where appropriate, that is).

Can you translate "mandje" as "little basket? " if not why not?

Yes you can.

"een mand" : a basket .

"een kleine mand" : a little basket.

"een mandje" : a little basket.
