In R' Wiesenthal's Siddur Sefas Yisroel, he talks about the כף הכינוי and different opinions about it. But I have no idea what this actually is. So, what is כף הכינוי?

  • It seems to be that he's talking about the word לך being vowelized either ָלְך or ְלָך, but I can't explain the name "כף הכינוי" – b a Oct 23 '17 at 12:07

This is the suffixed ך used to indicate a second-person direct object or possessor. Thus it's a כף (the letter of the alphabet) of כינוי (i.e. referring to someone or something).
