I heard "lón", but luckily that was just counted as a typo. Do "lón" and "leon" really sound so similar? (Of course I should not expect "lunch" in Animals 103.)

The should sound similar, but not the same. This is one of the cases where the speaker fails to distinguish a slender consonant - and important distinction in this case! You can hear leon pronounced here.

It marked mine wrong rather than taking it as a typo (in a general practice, so no thematic hints). Definitely sounds like lón, and in "Tá ??? agam", there's not much context to go on...

I heard the same thing, but was marked wrong. I am working in a general strengthening exercise, so had no context. I'll check out the link that galaxyrocker posted.....

Maybe, "Tá leon agam; is peata é." Or, "Tá peata leon agam."
