What is an 8 letter word beginning with K?
An 8 letter word beginning with the letter K is kayaking. Other words include kangaroo, kerosene, kerchief, keckling, keyboard and killings.
There isn't any. According to Cassell, although the letter K was included in the Latin alphabet, it was usually replaced by a C, a in Karthago which became Carthago, the Latin for Carthage. The most commonly used word beginning with a K (by the Romans) was the word kalends, which was the first day of any month.
The letter 'K' begins the word 'knife' because the word's uncertain origins in the Proto-Germanic word *knibaz were honored by the Ancient Norsemen when they brought the word into their language (Old Norse) as knifr, which was then brought into the Late Old English as the word cnif. Thence to modern English as we know it today.
