1. illustrate the differences between binary representation of voice, Laryngeal Realism and Laryngeal Relativism 

2. explain the following terms: spontaneous voicing, passive voicing, active voicing, phonetic interpretation, default rule,

3. discuss contexts for delaryngealization (voicing neutralization) in Polish


All the necessary information can be found here:
