After listening to this several dozen times to make sure I'm not suffering auditory hallucinations: Why (or how?) is there a hard "g-" sound at the beginning of Älgen?
I was going back through all the vocabulary I've had trying to find a word that sounded like "Galien"...
Edit: I've since checked http://forvo.com/word/%C3%A4lgen/ and there is no initial hard-G, so now I'm even more confused.
I'm starting to get concerned that Zamlet and I are hearing an entirely different audio clip from what other people are hearing. I've even cut off the audio as soon as it starts and all I hear is "g-"
(Edit: Maybe not. I went way back to the Animals lesson in which "älgen" is introduced, and the audio does the same thing when the words starts a sentence, but doesn't do it when it isn't the first word. I suspect maybe there's some Swedish thing, or something particular to this narrator, that results in inserting a very heavy glottal stop at the beginning of the word when it starts a sentence like that.)
