Or around the c-HORN-er. Corner!

A comment on morphology (for a change). Horn + Corner are the same word:

"One of the most interesting sound shifts is the Indo-European “k-” sound. It remained the same into Latin — but became an almost-silent “h-” in [evolved languages]"

"[...] as German evolved into English, “k-” generally became the “h-” sound in English"
