(Redirected to K with stroke article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

K with stroke (Ꝁ, ꝁ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, derived from K with the addition of a bar through the letter.

It was used in Latin as an abbreviation for words that start with k. In Old Norse it was used for "konungr" (king) or to abbreviate the word "skulu" (shall) to "sꝁ".

It is used as a phonetic symbol representing a voiceless velar fricative (IPA: x).
