It always seems odd to me to pronounce a latin 'e' as 'ay'. Shouldn't it be much shorter than that, as in 'and' or 'as'?

“Est tamen rogatio” dixit Alice, “an efficere verba tot res indicare possis.”

It should be between "eh" and "ay", but it is difficult to describe sounds that we don't have in our own language with examples from our language :?
