      > (1)All perfect tense forms receive the endings of

      '-ie'( * The 'e' having two dots above) , right ?

      * yes

      > (2)How do you put those two dots above words like

      ortane , laurie etc ( Is it to do with the fonts or
      something else ?)

      * in MS word you press ctrl-: + e, in html you write ë but the dots are not needed: they are just to indicate this final e is never silent

      > (3)How does one know when to apply the prefix 'u' to

      words like utulie , the 'a' to 'mat-'( amatie in
      perfect tense ) or the 'i' to 'ric-' ( iricie in
      perfect tense )( Did i get these spellings correctly
      ?)?

      * these prefixes form the perfect tense

      > (4)Does one pronounce the words ending with 'e'(with

      the two dots above) as in Manwe( Man weh ?)  , Orome(
      oro meh ?)

      * yes, and that is exactly what the dots indicate (you dont need them, since you already know that ALL final e's are pronounced)
