Why does παλτο sound like "παλικο"?

I hear this as well; it sounds like there's an extra 'i' syllable between the λ and the τ? Is this just an accident of the recording, or is it really a three syllable word with an extra 'i' sound?

This is a problem with dualingo! I always Google a word if I am suspicious of the Dualingo pronunciation. When I Google άντρας, for instance, I realize the n is silent. Makes so much more sense as "adras," but the robot makes it sound like ondras. AFAIK the robot lady's pronunciation of strawberry has stumped even the most resolute Greek academics. And haburger for hamburger, an English word.

I'm a total beginner though. Maybe it makes sense to other people. I also love and appreciate dualingo. And chickens.

Does anyone else use the words "coat" and "jacket" interchangeably? Is there a distinction in Greek?

    That should also be correct. Did you report it?

    it sounded to me like the accent was above the alpha for παλτο. I myself didn't hear what some others are indicating, but it seemed to me that the voice lingered over the alpha in παλτο. Not a huge deal.
