    Those are pretty big questions. Are you completely clueless about each of them? Do you not have any phonetics books, or a library with phonetics books? Some of those questions would have whole chapters dedicated to them.

    I could help with some, but it would be better to know if you are completely clueless or just need some support. I can't answer them all - the first would be person opinion, and the third I don't agree with...
