@pauamma I'll take a guess this is from LT 17 Bawal pumasok Bawal lumusót (the final syllable is accented) The /k/ and /t/ are definitely there in the audio. In Tagalog, /t/ and /k/ are not aspirated which may be what you are perceiving at the end of a phrase. Let me know if I have misled...

@pauamma According to Essential Tagalog Grammar Appendix A, the authors of LT use their own system of marking stress. Essential Tagalog Grammar Appendix A compares another spelling system with their system (column "system used in this book"). Yes, they explicitly state that "In this book, all syllables with a long vowel are underlined" but long (stressed) ultimate syllables are not underlined as per their Appendix A specifications.
