No, the word 'the' the 't' is pronounced as part of the 'th' sound. The 'e' in 'the' is pronounced differently depending on whether the word comes before a vowel or a consonant. So, for example, in 'the garden' or 'the fisherman' of the 'e' sound is raised, while in 'the book', or 'the process', the 'e' is flattened.
