From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   K \K\, (k[amac]),
      the eleventh letter of the English alphabet, is nonvocal
      consonant. The form and sound of the letter K are from the
      Latin, which used the letter but little except in the early
      period of the language. It came into the Latin from the
      Greek, which received it from a Ph[d2]nician source, the
      ultimate origin probably being Egyptian. Etymologically K is
      most nearly related to c, g, h (which see).
  
      Note: In many words of one syllable k is used after c, as in
               crack, check, deck, being necessary to exhibit a
               correct pronunciation in the derivatives, cracked,
               checked, decked, cracking; since without it, c, before
               the vowels e and i, would be sounded like s. Formerly,
               k was added to c in certain words of Latin origin, as
               in musick, publick, republick; but now it is omitted.
  
      Note: See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect][sect] 240, 178, 179,
               185.

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Mute \Mute\, n.

            unwillingness, or other cause. Specifically:
            (a) One who, from deafness, either congenital or from
                  early life, is unable to use articulate language; a

            (b) A person employed by undertakers at a funeral.
            (c) A person whose part in a play does not require him to
                  speak.
            (d) Among the Turks, an officer or attendant who is
                  selected for his place because he can not speak.
  
      2. (Phon.) A letter which represents no sound; a silent
            letter; also, a close articulation; an element of speech
            formed by a position of the mouth organs which stops the
            passage of the breath; as, {p}, {b}, {d}, {k}, {t}.
  
      3. (Mus.) A little utensil made of brass, ivory, or other
            material, so formed that it can be fixed in an erect

From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:

From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:
   k- pref.   [rare] Extremely.   Rare among hackers, but quite
   common among crackers and {warez d00dz} in compounds such as
   `k-kool' /K'kool'/, `k-rad' /K'rad'/, and `k-awesome' /K'aw`sm/.
   Also used to intensify negatives; thus, `k-evil', `k-lame',
   `k-screwed', and `k-annoying'.   Overuse of this prefix, or use in
   more formal or technical contexts, is considered an indicator of
   {lamer} status.
