homework help

I have to analyze this sentence, but I don't even understand its meaning:
magister usus omnium rerum est optimus.
nom-s, ?, gen-p, gen-p, "est", nom-s

There's also "magister usus omnium est rerum optimus" in the text (different word-order).
My guess is "the teacher the experience of all things is the best", but this does not make any sense.

"magistri usus omnium rerum est optimus" (the teacher's experience of all things is the best) makes sense ...

Dare macron?

Salvete omnes,

Why doesn't the verb dare - to give not have a macron over the "a"? Does it have something to do with the word order? Does this occur in other conjugations as well?

More homework help -- negatives, questions, emphasis

English to Latin translation. This time practice negation, questions and emphasis (e.g., Does Caesar have the ball?)

The lesson I'm working through introduces the basics but leaves a lot of unanswered questions, so I expect I've made a lot of mistakes here trying to do stuff the lesson didn't cover.

Mark has a sword.
Marcus gladium tenet.

Translation question

I'm reading "Latin for Today 2nd Year Course" and I am having a problem with one sentence.

"Hic adulescens ita me amabat, ita verebatur ut me quasi magistro uteretur."

My lame attempt at a translation is:

This youth thus loved me, thus he feared that he didn't use me as a teacher.

Am I far off? Any help will be appreciated.
