> It is used to denote the sound written as [q] in the International Phonetic
Alphabet (the voiceless uvular plosive). For collation purposes, it is therefore
considered to be a type of 'q', rather than a type of 'k', and should sort near 'q'.
At least in fi_FI.UTF-8 and en_US.UTF-8, ĸ appears next to k when sorted:
% for l in j k l p q r ĸ; do echo "$l"; done | sort | xargs
j k ĸ l p q r
Both Unicode and ISO-14651 place ĸ after q and before r.
The locales seem to base the collation on
/usr/share/i18n/locales/iso14651_t1_common, which places ĸ after k. Perhaps the
file is based on an outdated version of the ISO-14651 table and needs to be updated.
