5. λόγον τε δοῦναι καὶ δέξασθαι. We should expect τε to follow δοῦναι: see on 316D

10. ἐκκρούων. ‘Vox ducta a pugilatu, cuius proprium κρούειν de rep. IV. p. 422B οὐδ᾽ εἰ ἐξείηὑποφεύγοντι (τῷ πύκτῃτὸν πρότερον αἰεὶ προσφερόμενον ἀναστρέφοντα κρούειν etc.’ Heindorf. The simple verb is used metaphorically in Theaet. 154E of beating arguments with arguments, ἤδη ἂνσυνελθόντες σοφιστικῶς εἰς μάχην τοιαύτην ἀλλήλων τοὺς λόγους τοῖς λόγοις ἐκρούομεν, and the compound in Phaedr. 228E ἐκκέκρουκάς με ἐλπίδος. Here the idea is of beating off, staving off by force, i.e. here by μακρηγορία: ἐκκρούειν δίκην is used by Demosthenes of staving off a trial by συκοφαντία and the like.
