A typo in the new Wheelock?

In Wheelock, 6th edition, Chapter 22, Practice and Review (page 144), Sentence 5 reads: Contrā aliās manūs malōrum cīvium eaedem rēs iterum parābuntur; rem pūblicam dēfendēmus et istī cito discēdent.

O miserable old man, not to have seen in such long life that death is to be despised! Death however plainly it is disgarded, Which manifestly ought to be regarded with indifference if it really puts an end to the soul, or to be even desired if at ...

Wheelock's Latin - A Comparison of Editions

Salvete,

I have noticed a Wheelock Latin's 6th and 7th Edition selling in bookshops, so does anyone know what's the difference between both editions? And most importantly, is it fine to just get the sixth edition? - Is learning compromised in any manner? Your advice is greatly appreciated!

Phaethon

How is this word pronounced? I know the 2 dots over the e changes the pronunciation but that is no clue to how the entire word is correctly pronounced. Is there an audio file which has this word?

personal pronouns

Wheelock ch. 11 says nostrum and vestrum are partitive genitives and nostri and vestri are objective genitives; I understand that but since nostrum and vestrum have neuter endings does this mean that nostri and vestri are neuter as well?

warmenhoven wheelock vocab learner

http://www.warmenhoven.org/latin/vocab/ used to contain an amazing resource for learning Wheelock information - it appears to be down (perhaps permanently)

Does anyone know of a comparable resource?

Ch. 30 "Evidence and Confession"

... sed primo dubitavit et negavit se de his rebus responsurum esse. I don't have any trouble translating this sentence but rather I question the Latin wording. Shouldn't the next to last word be responsurus(masculine)?

Vocative endings

Wheelock says that the vocative singular endings of nouns like filius end in -i but that the vocative singular of adjectives ending in -ius is -ie. Can anyone supply some examples of this type of adjective because I have never seen them. They must be a rare declension of adjective rarely seen.
