    Welcome to Ukrainian Language! Please provide with some citation for context. You must have been reading a translation, and abbreviations are basically up to the will of the translator. For example "kn" could stand for книга /knyha/ ("a book"), but it could be "volume", "section", or anything else. Oct 25, 2020 at 2:07

It means knyha (book):

кн. книга

kn. stands for "книга" (book), and in this context refers to volume (like in a "Random Dictionary, Vol. IV".

    Welcome to Ukrainian Language! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to back it with references to credible sources and/or academic research. Unbacked posts attract downvotes and disputes. Also, your answer seems to add nothing comparing to the existing answer. Dec 4, 2020 at 4:39

    It adds a comparison of "kn." to "vol.", and analogies usually help to understand something better. Besides, in a question as mundane as this I am not sure what kind of reference can be used.
