Origin of fero, tuli, latus

I'm curious as to how this particular verb developed. It's obvious fero comes from the Greek verb phero, which means about the same thing. But I'm not quite sure where tuli and latus came from.

Absolute beginner - first question

Hello everyone.

Recently decided to teach myself Latin, "Just for the hell of it". I've bought myself a few books, a decent latin dictionary and i've downloaded some readers from the net.
I've managed to work my way through verbs of the first declension and some basic nouns. Going ok so far, although perhaps a little slow.

This forum looks like a great resource and I hope to use it throughout my learning. But for ...

Could anyone look at this sentence and tell me if ...
