Clinton "Bär" McKinnon (born 24 December 1969) is an American musician, perhaps best known playing saxophone in San Francisco based band Mr. Bungle. Bär, pronounced "bear", is a childhood nickname, given to him by his older sisters. In 1989 Bär joined Mr. Bungle and studied music at Humboldt State University, where he met Trevor Dunn and Trey Spruance. His primary instrument is the saxophone, but he plays a number of other instruments including flute, keyboards, guitar, drums, percussion, bass and other assorted woodwinds.
The phonological system of the Old English language underwent many changes during the period of its existence. These included a number of vowel shifts, and the palatalization of velar consonants in many positions. For historical developments prior to the Old English period, see Proto-Germanic language.
