ka    ke    kh    ki    kk    kl    km    kn    ko    kp    kr    ku       

k  pronounced as , for the single letter, as when spelling a word. see pīʻāpā.

k-  marker of k-words (definite articles, possessives, demonstratives), with meaning singular/definite. (Gram. 10.1)   PPN *t-.

k  abbreviation for kana (ton).

K  abbreviation for koena (difference, remainder).

k  the seventh letter of the Hawaiian alphabet. Its sound varies somewhat from the English k, sound to that of the t, according as the enunciation is made at the end of the tongue or near the root. It is difficult to make Hawaiians perceive the difference between the English sounds of k and t. The natives on the Island of Hawaii generally pronounce the letter with the palate, that is, give it the k sound, while the natives of the Island of Kauai pronounce it with the end of the tongue that is, pronounce it as t.

ka₁  definite singular article replaced by ke before words beginning with a, e, o, and k, and before some words beginning with the glottal stop and p (ka ʻaka, the laugh, ke ʻala, the fragrance; ka , the yard, ke , the dish). In documents in the State Archives dating from the 1850s, ke was used also before words beginning with other letters. Ka is sometimes used before nouns that are obviously plural and instead of possessives (see ex., mae). Ka is usually translated ‘the’ except that it is not translated before English mass nouns and status titles, as ka hanohano, glory, and ke Akua, God.

Oihk. 17:11. O ke koko ka (mea) i hana i kalahala, the blood the (thing) it makes atonement; that is, the thing which makes; o ka pono wale no ka i oi mamua o ka hewa, righteousness only is the thing (that which) excels wickedness. Ka also as an article stands for ka mea, and ka mea nana, the person who, or the thing which. see the following passages: John 12:2, 49; Mat. 18:23; Mar. 9:7. see also Grammar, Syntax, Rule 6, Note 3.
