It's better than "axe"!
The term "horn" is more often used in jazz band for any wind instruments
- most often trumpet. It is also used as a generic term in marching band
"Horns Up!". Personally, I call my clarinet a "horn" with utmost
My question is where (properly) the accent falls in "clar i net" (my
dictionary shows both) and do we delete the "i" sound? (I've heard
"clarnet" pronunciation)
