EtymologyEdit

From the Postal Map romanization of Mandarin 北京 (Běijīng), compare Middle Chinese 北京 (MC pək̚ kˠiæŋ) or Cantonese 北京 (bak1 ging1), itself derived from French Pékin, a transcription based on the Nanjing-dialect pronunciation.

PronunciationEdit

Proper nounEdit

Peking

  1. Dated form of Beijing, a direct-administered municipality, the capital city of China.
    • 1971, Central Intelligence Bulletin[1], Directorate of Intelligence, page 5:
      COMMUNIST CHINA: Peking is expanding its naval activity in the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea some 200 miles southeast of Hai-nan Island.
    • 2010 December, John Pollock, A Foreign Devil in China, World Wide Publications, →ISBN, page 45:
      Back at Tsingkiangpu the Bells had a taste of the unsettled state of China in the years when warlords ruled provinces on behalf of the government in Peking but were virtually independent autocrats clinging to power until toppled by another.

Usage notesEdit

Although more common in English as late as the 1980s,[4] 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.
