A question about the strange sound here
The question is to native speakers: do you hear in the following part "liked to kill", but not "likes to kill" or you can only guess not paying much attention to the ending?
The text as we can get it is:
"James had only seen these creatures in books before. They were called velociruptors, and they we dinosaurs which liked to kill in groups..."
But I definitely hear "which LIKES TO KILL", which is not correct, of course.
Probably, the trick is because the /D/ in "liked" is a bit dropped out for speed with immediate following strongly fricatived /T/.
Any your guess?
