Isn't: I become weaker. Also correct?

Yes, that should be accepted.

Cognates in English: "I worth swack" (from Old English 'ic weorð swæc' (I become weak)).

Is it just me, or is there a /t/ sound at the end of "word".. At both the normal and slower pace it sounded like "ik wordt zwakker!"..

The letter 'd' at the end of a word sounds like 't'.

And a 'b' at the end of a word makes the 'p' sound.
