EtymologyEdit

From the Postal Map romanization of Mandarin Chinese 北京, itself derived from French Pekin, a transcription based on the Nanjing-dialect pronunciation

PronunciationEdit

Proper nounEdit

Peking

  1. Alternative term for Beijing

Usage notesEdit

Although more common in English as late as the 1980s, the Postal Map romanization Peking is now less common than pinyin Beijing in standard English and, although not obsolete, can feel dated or even historical.

The adjectival form Pekingese remains more common than recent updates such as Beijingese and Beijinger.
