I think the question about aspiration of this k relates to the fact that
it is at the onset of a word-medial unstressed syllable. So, although it
is aspirated, the aspiration might not be as pronounced as it would be
in a stressed and/or word-initial environment.
BTW, in a very close transcription, if one is using superscription
(position above baseline) and relative size reduction to indicate
aspiration, I suppose that degree of superscription or the size or both
could be modulated to indicate degree of aspiration?
Or perhaps just mark-up the unsuperscripted aspiration indicator, to
note degree of aspiration ... however you would like to measure that.
I guess you see what I'm hinting at ...
