Are there any Spanish adjectives that start with the letter "K"?

If so, please name some.

I am really curious because I never come across any.....

Also, a definition would be nice, seeing that I am only 17 and do not know certain words......

I found that "kaki" and "kaput" are but I don't know what they mean, also any nationality that starts with k is too.

  • Hi butterflew. Sorry I missed kaput - it means the same as in English - when a engine just dies, for instance - peregrinamar Jun 18, 2010
  • My dictionary has kaki as a noun rather than an adj. LAm usage. It means khaki, as in khaki-coloured - the sludge greenish colour of army uniforms - peregrinamar Jun 18, 2010
