Beginner Question

Salvete omnes,

In the fourth principal part why do some books (and people) tell you to use the -us ending while others tell you to use the -um ending?

e.g. claudo, claudere, clausi, clausus/clausum

thanks

Fautor primoris - Help

I'm a quality manager and seek to reinforce the value of our customer via a motto.

Does Fautor primoris mean customer first? Well, patron first.

I'm a fledgling student of Latin and do appreciate any tutelage.

Thank you in advance.

Beginner's problem with a sentence

Hi,
I am trying to learn Latin with one of the text books Textkit supplies (manymany thanks for this great idea); unfortunately I am completely on my own and sometimes I have the idea of seeing only trees and no forest.

Please help me to analyse this sentence:
Comes poetae poematae grato liberatus est cura.

The companion of the poet by the pleasing poem -- is cured

But what do I do with liberatus?

Thank ...

Ablative case...

Here is the explication the first chapter of "Beginner's Latin" gave me, but still I do not understand it...

Ablative case: 'with', 'in' used (not always) with prepositions (e.g. cum, in)

What does exactly that means? I tried to translate it to English, but it appears that English does not have such case...

Could someone explain it to me???

Thanks!!! I would really appreciate it :D

How many languages do you know?

How many languages do you know?

Not a must, but it would be great if you could also post which languages you know and your current level of fluency.

In order to count as knowing a language you should at least be semi-fluent. (Whatever that means to you)

From,
-Jonathan.
