Crossword Genius

To round off, become pompous (7)


I believe the answer is:


'pompous' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'to round off' is the wordplay.
'off' indicates an anagram.
'toround' with letters rearranged gives 'OROTUND'.

'become' is the link.

(Other definitions for orotund that I've seen before include "Full, clear and musical" , "Resonant" , "Not dour (anag.)" , "Full, round" , "booming" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
