Enclitics

I've got a list of enclitics from a book available here (bennett's "a latin grammar") and this is it:

-que, -ne, -ue, -ce, -met, -dum, -cum

I've searched these fora and the web, and got no explanations except for the -que and -ne particles, and loosely for the -ue. could someone show me examples using each one of those enclitics, and explain their functions to me?

Quote for a Bad Teacher

Just wondering if anyone could give me some help with this:

I have an English class with a teacher who marked my final grade down today from an A to a B based on "who I am" even though I had earned an A through the coursework. She told me that despite my work this semester, I didn't deserve an A because of my attitude toward the class. To get to the point, we are ...

"limited edition"

does anyone happen to know a Latin phrase for "limited edition"? I imagine there would not be much need for the term in Classical Latin with the lack of mass publication, but surely a term pops up in some Medieval print. this would be helpful to me in a project I am doing.

verb origins of 'ave'

This may seem like a rather silly question, but since 'salve' appears to be the imperative form of 'salveo, -ere' and 'vale' appears to be the imperative of 'valeo, -ere', I was just wondering what the root verb for 'ave' is and what it means. I'm trying to teach some complete beginners 'Conversational Latin' and I've decided this must be important, but am not quite sure what to do about it.

Help is appreciated - ...
