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.

Todd

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 ...
