100+ K Adjectives in English

K is one of the least used letters in the English alphabet; it is the fifth least frequently used (with the letters V, X, Z, J, and Q being used less frequently). As a result, you will find very few adjectives that start with K.

 types of adjectives:-

Descriptive adjectives: clarify a quality (such as known),

Proper adjectives: come from proper nouns (such as French food),

Adjectives of quantity: that indicate amount (such as many),

Numeral adjectives: that indicate number (such as two),

Interrogative adjectives: that are used when asking questions (such as which),

Demonstrative adjectives: that point out something specific (such as this),

Possessive adjectives: that indicate ownership (such as my).

Adjectives that Start with K-

The letter K can be traced back to the Greek letter Kappa, which came from the Semitic Kaph. Prior to that, a form of K appeared in Egyptian hieroglyphs where it represented the word “hand.” When Greek words were absorbed into Latin, the letter C replaced the K. As a result, the Romance Languages (such as Italian, French, and Spanish) infrequently use the letter K. In the 12th Century, however, K was reintroduced and replaced the letter C at the start of words that had a palatal velar. This is the hard “kuh” sound at the start of words such as kid, king, kitchen, and kitten.

In English, the letter K is often silent (especially at the end of words). It is silent at the start of words when it is followed by the letter N. Some examples are:

Known

Kneed

Knightly

At the beginning of words, K is usually pronounced “Kuh” or “Kay.”
