the form "bebo^san"

Hi, everybody:
Perseus says "bebo^san" is the "perf. part. act. fem. acc. sing" of "baino^", and this fits the context (Plotinus 1.6.9.15) well.
But I still cannot understand how exactly it is formed, given the LSJ entry and the rules.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Arkadi

Hi
This has probably been asked many times, but I'm going to ask it again. Whats the difference between the short and long o? Long as in holy and short as in wholly. Last time I checked those sounded the exact same. Thanks

EDIT: Another question. Are the ae and oe ligatures commonly accepted as correct, or would it be better just to use ae, or does it really not matter?

"idemque" in Cicero

Salvete omnes.

Please consider the following sentence form Cicero: Pro M. Caelio, 35:

Plato in Greek

Hello,
I have started to learn Greek mainly because of Plato.. But now, as I have searched a little in the Web, I couldn't find anything not translated into English or other languages, reading what is not, of course, my goal..
So, does any of you, Good Wise People out there, knows of any place in the Internet which holds some works of this superb philosopher? Some links would be very useful - not only ...

How to Pronunciat Latin by Portuguese sounds question

Salvete.

As promised in my introduction post here am I starting to put questions. My first question, and probably of every one trying to learn Latin by himself and without a great knowledge of English, is about pronunciations.
