The Letter K (The English Alphabet)



The letter K is the eleventh Letter in The English Alphabet.  It is also the eighth Consonant in The English Alphabet.

As with every Letter in The English Alphabet, The Letter K has two versions in the written form.  These two versions are called:  The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case.

 


The Upper-Case K looks like this:

k

The Lower-Case K looks like this:

k


Notice that the only difference between The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case K is the size.  The Lower-Case K is just a smaller version of The Upper-Case K.  You will find that this is the same for quite a few Letters in The Alphabet.


Pronunciation


The letter K is only pronounced one way in The English Language. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Notice!


As you learn The Common Tongue of The English Language, you will see that the The Letter K is often followed by The Letter N.  When this happens, there is a different pronunciation.

In this situation, The Letter K is silent.  In-other-words, it is not pronounced.  As in: …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….


  • Knight
  • Knee
  • knife
  • knot
  • knuckle

 


In all these cases, the words are pronounced as if The Letter K was not there.  In-other-words, they are pronounced as if the word started with The Letter N.
