Here you will find one or more explanations in English for the word k. Also in the bottom left of the page several parts of wikipedia pages related to the word k and, of course, k synonyms and on the right images related to the word k.
K K, (k[=a]),
the eleventh letter of the English alphabet, is nonvocal
consonant. The form and sound of the letter K are from the
Latin, which used the letter but little except in the early
period of the language. It came into the Latin from the
Greek, which received it from a Ph[oe]nician source, the
ultimate origin probably being Egyptian. Etymologically K is
most nearly related to c, g, h (which see).
Note: In many words of one syllable k is used after c, as in
crack, check, deck, being necessary to exhibit a
correct pronunciation in the derivatives, cracked,
checked, decked, cracking; since without it, c, before
the vowels e and i, would be sounded like s. Formerly,
k was added to c in certain words of Latin origin, as
in musick, publick, republick; but now it is omitted.
