In the Latin alphabet, the letter K typically does not have any standard diacritical marks or accents associated with it. However, there are a few languages and transliteration systems that use modified versions of the letter K with diacritical marks where phonetic distinctions are necessary. Here are a few examples:
One example is the Romanization of the Cyrillic alphabet, particularly for the Kazakh language. In this system, the letter Қ (Q) is used to represent the sound of the Latin letter K. The letter Қ (Q) in Kazakh is equivalent to the Latin letter K.
Additionally, in some transliteration systems for languages like Kurdish, the letter K can be modified with diacritical marks such as the acute accent (´), grave accent (`), or circumflex accent (^) to represent specific sounds or phonetic nuances. These systems are used to represent the unique phonetic qualities of those languages and may have specific rules and conventions.
The Tlingit language, spoken by the indigenous Tlingit people of Alaska, uses the letter Ḵ (K with a dot below) to represent a voiceless uvular ejective stop sound.
It is important to note that the number of languages using modified versions of the letter K with diacritical marks is relatively limited, and the examples provided above do not represent an exhaustive list. The vast majority of languages using the Latin alphabet do not employ diacritical marks with the letter K.
