Explanation:
Latin most often uses no word for "you" unless there is some special emphasis or distinction being made; usually just the verb is used. Latin also forces you to use one verb form if you're talking to multiple people (plural), but a different verb form if you're talking to one person (singular). Finally, various verbs may be used, depending on the context.

Here are three options:

SINGULAR -- PLURAL: "meaning".
FERS -- FERTIS: "carry, bring".
PORTAS -- PORTATIS: "(physically) carry, transport".
GERIS -- GERITIS: "carry (a child in pregnancy)".
