How to say

ONE: how am I supposed to find how to pronounce these words, like what do the vowels sound like?
TWO: how do I say the word and, or is?
THREE: I'm working with this site to get words, but how or when do I learn how to set up the sentences? I'm nowhere near ready for that, but is there a program to learn that?

THANK YOU!

alphabet development and classical latin

Salvete,

I'm new to Latin and I'm trying to (re-)start it right, and maybe even write some software on Latin (I'm a C/C++ programmer).

I did some research to find out about the development of the latin alphabet, but have found inconsistencies and contradictions between the results. Here is what I have:

Assatura ?

Does anyone know what the above word means ? I am guessing it is something to do with food from the context :-

Hortor Abduco Compleo?

Can some one tell me if this makes sense, and if so, if it is gramatically correct? I'm trying to come up with a saying or phrase relating to sports compeditions but has to have the intials H, A, and C, in that specific order.

My understanding is, the above means "to encourage, to lead, to complete."

If part or something does not, can you give me suggestions?

Dulce Et Decorum Est

Use of "HAC"

I have several newbie questions relating to the latin word HAC.

I looked it up and I found two definitions,
hac : this side, this way, here.
hac : (fem. sing. abl.) He who lives BY THIS (the sword), ...

I am more interested in the use of second definition since it seems not used much.

Can someone please explain its context or how it is used or when it is used.

And explain what ...

"New" Latin Words

I read somewhere that the Vatican, in modern times, created new words in an effort to update the Latin language.

I was wondering what this dictionary is called and whether or not it has met with widespread acceptance or not?

(I apologise in advance if this topic has been covered, but my search for it didn't turn up anything.)
