Businesses Spelled with K for C

Vivian Cook

At the beginning of a word the choice of letter to correspond to the 'k' sound is usually the letter 'c' before 'o/a/u'/r/l', the letter 'k' before 'e/i', and the letter 'q' for words sounding 'kw'. Hence businesses use 'k' for many novel spellings.

This use of 'k' for 'c' has occurred in product-names etc since at least the 1920s, when Louise Pound said: 'All in all, there is no mistaking the kall of "k" over our kountry, our kurious kontemporary kraving for it, and its konspicuous use in the klever koinages of kommerce'.
