Words I Don't Know: 'K'

I've been waiting (im)patiently for this letter of the alphabet to surface from the tiny pages of my pocket-sized edition of Webster's Dictionary I found in a corner somehwere a year or so ago. And today is the day that I make the leap from dream to reality in expanding my 'K'nowledge of the letter 'K.'

Here are the words from two and a half tiny pages of 'K' words:

kachina: A doll representing an ancestral spirit of the Hopi.
kapok: A silky fiber from the fruit of a tropical tree, used in pillows, etc.
Kaddish: A Jewish prayer recited daily in the synagogue and by mourners.
Keogh plan: A retirement plan for the self-employed.
kepi: A French military cap with a flat, circular top and visor.
ketch: A 2-masted sailing vessel.
kilocycle: One thousand cycles per second.

My Favorite K-words:

kudos, kismet, kibbutz, kitsch

And let's not forget "Ksra: An informative blogger who just had a birthday." It's in the more modern dictionaries.
