hiragana origin
katakana origin
spelling kana 切手のキ
(Kitte no "ki")

, in hiragana, in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, which each represent one mora. Both represent [ki] and are derived from a simplification of the kanji. The hiragana character き, like , is drawn with the lower line connected when printing. When writing, the lines are separated (as in the picture to the right).

A dakuten may be added to the character; this transforms it into ぎ in hiragana, ギ in katakana, and gi in Hepburn romanization. The phonetic value also changes, to [ɡi] in initial, and varying between [ŋi] and [ɣi] in the middle of words.

A handakuten (゜) does not occur with ki in normal Japanese text, but it may be used by linguists to indicate a nasal pronunciation [ŋi].
