What exactly is the difference between the normal imperatives and the future imperatives? And how do you form the future imperatives?

Double check this for me...

My friend wanted me to translate this phrase into latin:
Listen to the worm of doubt, for it speaks the truth

I had a little difficulty but this is what I thought:
Audites ad dubitem vermim, pro veritam diceret.

Is that correct?

Conjugation sheet?

Hello, I am learning latin, I understand the grammar completely(as far as I have gotten, that is) but I wanted to know if there is a sheet of the conjugations of verbs and nouns (and adjectives) that I can print out?

Also, I want to know about the adverbs in latin, before I go through a download-athon again, which book deals with this?

Thanks!

Numbers...

I'm getting so confused about the distributive numbers. I understand all the others, but I can't understand how to use the distributives.
How are they used? :?

Do my work

my first actual homework help thread!
Ok in class we are reading an adaptation of the Cupid & Psyche story and doing like six lines a night. I can/do mentally complain but I still don't understaaaand this phrase
sic latius procedit in dies opinio

grammar arguement

I'm very new to latin so I decided to buy a couple of books to help the learning process. My dad has studied latin and so obviously thinks he knows everything. While he was looking through one of the books he found a passage of writing:

"Ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera a malo" (post-classical)
Do not lead us into temptation but free us from evil.

My dad said this was wrong as there ...

strange adversative combination: sed - tamen

I'm bothered by the use of sed & tamen in the
following sentence - can you help?

Dici potest consistere in tanta, sed minutissima tamen
fluiditate, ac subtilitate corporis.

I'm pretty sure that tanta qualifies fluiditate, but
am bothered about the positioning of the sed and
tamen. Maybe because I consider the fluidity and
subtility not be naturally contradictory. So far, I
have stretched my translation to be as follows, but
I'm uncomfortable with it ...

Similiter?

When I say "You are similar to him" I say Similis ei es. But when I want to say "You run like him" (similar to him) would that translate as Curris similiter ei? Or should I use the nominative instead of the dative when it's an adverb?
