Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

Peking

  1. Alternative term for Beijing

Usage notes[edit]

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.
