It's not wrong though, although the voice has a slightly funny intonation.
Swedish meatballs were one of my favorite dishes when I was growing up. (Probably not really Swedish, of course.)
Is it normal to hear "kott" as "shirt"? Is that how you actually pronounce it, or is the audio off?
This is correctly pronounced, though the intonation is a bit weird at the end.
k is pronounced as an Voiceless alveolo-palatal sibilant (click for sound)
Minus the r is what I hear. Though I think its more shot but the o sounding like you would say goat?
I might have missed something here but where does the "a" come from in "Hundarna"?
There are two, which one do you mean? :)
The first is part of a standard pluralisation rule - hund sg -> hundar pl.
The second one is part of a standard definiteness suffix - hundar indef -> hundarna def.
Thanks, for the insight, as I have continued to learn Swedish the definite and plurals have become much clearer.
It sounds like "Hunden äter kött". Only once I knew the answer and listened very closely, was I able to discern a very slight, almost nonexistent 'r' in the fast version. The slow version sounds like "Hundena äter kött", without any discernible 'r' even when listening closely. How would a Swedish native speaker pronounce this?
Can someone explain when I have to put an article? I'm really confused about that...
Swedish generally uses the same rules as English. In this case, kött - like "meat" - is a mass noun, so you don't use the article.
There are some idiomatic differences, but the only major exception is that Swedish doesn't use articles for being things like professions.
