Latin monolingual dictionary

Hi, does anyone know where one can get hold of a Latin monolingual dictionary? OK, not Thesaurus Linguae Latinae or Du Cange's Glossarium mediae et infimae latinitatis - I've not money or shelf-space enough! But I've always found mono-lingual dictionaries invaluable learning modern languages, and it seems odd I can't find a Latin one. Just a single-volume one would be perfect.

Printing this PDF

I have seen a post somewhere where someone took this file to Kinkos and had it printed out.

I tried the same but, an error kept resulting. It says in the security settings that the file allows printing.

Any one else try and print this?

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.

Short and Long O

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:

Accusatores quidem libidines, amores, adulteria, Baias, actas, convivia, comissationes, cantus, symphonias, navigia iactant, idemque significant nihil se te invita dicere.

Here's the translation from Yonge:

The accusers talk to us about lusts, and loves, and adulteries, and Baiae, and doings on the sea-shore, and banquets, and revels, and songs, and music parties, and water parties; and intimate also that they do not ...

Jesus?

Salvete,

If there is no "j" in Latin then how would you say "Jesus"? Sorry if this is common knowledge.

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 ...
