    Let me try.
    to ne (as in 'never')
    kehdeh ('ce' as in 'kept', 'e', in 'de' same as in previous syllable)
    mallis said contra
    owdentior (ow as in wow) eeto.
    So you got it mostly right :)

    This is Classical Latin. It would sound different in Ecclesiastical (medieval time) Latin.
