One thought on “Clarion

  1. I can’t find it right now, but “clarion” reminds me of an old “car audio and beyond” commercial. I’ve found the company (Clarion), a hotel (chain) and machine guns… If one wants to find a trumpet, must specify “clarion trumpet”, or “clarion musical instruments”. It means that it is a word that lost its initial meaning to the general public. It is my opinion as a non-English native speaker. The definition in your post, on the other hand, clearly pointed that long trumpet!
