Please help with the following:

Set syntagmatic relations and paradigmatic relations from the following groups of sounds:

a- /m/ /ey/ /t/

b- ./b/ /ou/ /t/

c- /p/ /a/ /r/ /k/
This is very complicated, but you could say that syntagmatic relations show how the sounds can combine to form lexemes. In your examples, syntagmatic relations would give:

a. mate
b. boat
c. park

Paradigmatic relations are very difficult to define, but you could say that there is a paradigmatic relation between all three because they're all from the same class of words: nouns. You can substitute each in the sentence

That's my (mate) (boat) (park)

and the sentence would still make sense because they all have a paradigmatic relation of "noun"

Bear in mind, please, that this is very complicated, and that I've simplified it! Hope it helps!

Paradigmatic relations are "vertical":

(that´s easy)

met, bet

rout, bout

beg, reg

= interchangability of phonemes in the lenguage!!! not in the speech!
