<div id="wrapper">The letter <b>K</b> comes from the Greek letter Κ (kappa), which was taken from the Semitic kaph, the symbol for an open hand. <span class="emoji"></span>This, in turn, was likely adapted by Semitic tribes who had lived in Egypt from the hieroglyph for "hand" representing /ḏ/ in the Egyptian word for hand, ⟨ḏ-r-t⟩ (likely pronounced /ˈcʼaːɾat/ in Old Egyptian). The Semites evidently assigned it the sound value /k/ instead, because their word for hand started with that sound. </div>
