My dictionary gives out three pronunciations from three sources: AHD, D.J. and K.K.. AHD stands for American Heritage Dictionary. What does D.J. and K.K. stand for?

Context:

mimicry
AHD
D.J.
K.K.
n.
pl. mim.ic.ries;
The act, practice, or art of mimicking.
An instance of mimicking.
Biology
The resemblance of one organism to another or to an object in its surroundings for concealment and protection from predators.

@oristarA,
Interesting...

I found one site that explains that D.J. is British pronunciation phonetic symbols and K. K. is American pronunciation phonetic symbols.

Does that make sense in your context?

Somewhere in the dictionary (probably at at the beginning or end) these abbreviations will be explained.

Not in this case. I've been using the dictionary for more than ten years.
