I cannot for the life of me remember how to spell alsjeblieft. Is this the hardest dutch spelling?

This is probably very late but just see it as "als-je-blieft". Als=if je=you blieft (belieft)=pleases. So it just literally says "if you please".

So how is "thee" pronounced? Is the "th" aspirated (like normal English "t" at the beginning of words)?
