Most of those are a mystery to me too, except for punct. That variable
in the dtlk/ltlk drivers is used to set the hardware synth's
"punctuation level", which among other things, determines if a string of
digits is pronounced digit by digit, or spoken as a single number: 123
could be "one two three" or "one hundred twenty three". The default of
"7" can be changed to "15" to change this behavior.
