Pig Latin

Grant Snider of Incidental Comics came up with this gem a few years ago. In case your Latin is a little rusty, here's a translation.

Cogito ergo sum: I think, therefore I am
Memento Mori: Remember you must die
Persona non grata: Person not welcome
Argumentum ad hominem: Argument against the person
Carpe Diem: Seize the day
E pluribus unum: Out of many, one
Ad astra per aspera: Through hardships to the stars
Deus ex machina: God from the machine
(via Geeks Are Sexy)

So is Latin pronounced like English, or do the letter combinations make other sounds as in other languages?

E.g. El Nino in Spanish is pronounced very differently than if it were an English word.

I am the wrong person to ask. I never took Latin.
