I was thinking that you never see clement used, except as clemency or inclement.

Also, and I know that it's handed to you this way, but it seems strange that all the examples aren't actually examples, but clement as a last name.

Weird things I notice. Happy Thursday!

Ha! I hadn't even looked at all the examples. I see the word but it doesn’t dawn on me to pay complete attention to what I'm reading.
