Cede is imperative, so that's grammatically correct. // Imperativo modo ergo bonum.
Redona is imperative, not redono. // Redona scribendum est pro imperativo.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
