There's no mention of the lower-case K that has a loop in it instead of the top diagonal. The articles for a and g talk about both versions of their respective lower-case characters. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:39, 17 July 2009 (UTC) heai thid trhe k wanf ak sddd k sdsk k —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 09:31, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
When I was in law school, we used K to mean "contract." Anyone else do this as a law student or lawyer? --♥ «Charles A. L.» 04:21, Apr 20, 2004 (UTC)
Fixing the top of this article
Somebody please fix the top of this article; it looks very DIRTY.
- It does, but I can't for the life of me figure out what the hell is wrong. — Ilγαηερ (Tαlκ) 20:25, 19 Sep 2004 (UTC)
- Go to "edit this page" and study the way it was typed; and that should give you a clue. 22.214.171.124 20:27, 19 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Maluma and Takete
Someone changed the phrase "Not surprisingly, several languages use characters with sharp angles to indicate the sound /k/ " to "Surprisingly..." I guess this is subjective, but to me it came as no surprise when I realised it was the case. I thought the Maluma/Takete distinction was widely known, but it isn't even mentioned in Wikipedia - perhaps because one needs copyright to reproduce the figures. Anyhow, if no one has any objections, I suggest we remove the adverb altogether to "Several languages use characters with sharp angles to indicate the sound /k/ ", and then it's up to the reader to become surprised or not.
- I agree; I'd been considering doing this myself. FourlopadDALiSZooohfour 12:13, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

K in cyclops
Why the hell do some writers try to ruin the only perfect letter in our God-Forsaken alphabet by making it also have an s sound?Cameron Nedland 21:04, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

- Done. Shinobu 19:20, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
"K書" (literally k the book) means read the book.
Why? Any references for this? Etymology? Shinobu 19:17, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
In gaming K stands for 1,000
- I'm a native Taiwanese and I can confirm this (a more accurate translation would be "to study hard"), although I had a hard time trying to find references; most people just use it so naturally, I think. Here is a news article from Xinhua net talking about Taiwan slangs. 
- One possible etymology is that "K" is short for "看 (kàn)". That's doubtful, though, since Taiwanese people aren't normally familiar with pinyin; another possible explanation provided in the Xinhua article above is that it originally referred to the king in poker cards, but then it expanded its meaning to denote taking a vigorous move to tackle something. Indeed, there is also "K歌" which just means to sing. However I think that usage is also present in Hong Kong, because Eason Chan had a song called "K歌之王" (The king of singing).

K in games
- K stands for kilo (Latin for thousand, I think). SalaSkan 22:04, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
- As well, K is the only Scrabble tile with point value 5. Should I add that to the article? ZtObOr 23:46, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
No productive "Hard C" in Germanic languages other than English?
Dutch seems to C in German exists singly in words adopted directly from Italian (cello, cembalo) when it represents the palatal affricate and of course in "ch", "sch", and "tsch". —Preceding unsigned comment added by Paul from Michigan (talk • contribs) 20:26, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Symbols using K?
Is there a list of symbols using K or a circled K? Aside from the Circle K convenience store chain, I saw a circled K on a circuit board in a CD player, and was wondering what it meant.
