Sorry......

In Hungarian, the loud acoustic alarm used to alert people to emergencies is "sziréna", while the creature in Greek mythology is "szirén".
Different word for a different object.

Poor English speakers... None of them know what are talking about...
- Whenever a poet or preacher, chief or wizard spouts gibberish, the human race spends centuries deciphering the message. - Umberto Eco
- To assert that the earth revolves around the sun is as erroneous as to claim that Jesus was not born of a virgin. - Cardinal Bellarmine at the trial of Galilei
