accents in MOUSA

Why is the circumflex accent used in the nom pl of the first declension feminine noun MOUSA (Muse), e.g.,
Mousai with circumflex over the penultimate dipthong -ou, and then the acute accent is used in the dat pl, e.g., Mousais with acute over the penultimate dipthong? Does -ai count as short, but -ais count as long?

Having trouble with the word-order!(and other things)

Hello!
I've just started my Greek studies (I'm all on my own...no teachers) and I have some questions:

When translating (for example "small armies") where should the adj. be placed? Before or after "armies"?

The preposition ")en" (par. 40), when in a sentence preceeding the dative; how exactly does it translate to english...does it become something like "within"?

If anyone has any useful tips on wordorder in general, I would appreciate it!

Thanks! Great Forum!

Paragraph 179, line 3

My translation reads:

and for the truth they were proceeding to the river?

How is this truth intended? Is it asking whether in all honesty they proceeded to the river or did they proceed to the river in order to find the truth?

JWW Paragraphs 18-27

for example, how do i know that the a in h(me/ra is ...

And Cyrus had strongholds in the satrapy, war boats in the sea, and brave soldiers in the country, Greek hoplites and Persan trageeters and bowmen, too.
But Tissaphernes, Caria's satrap, was Cyrus's enemy, but at that time was making no expedition ...
