Hello native English speakers. I was looking for the pronunciation of the word ' Beijing ' and found this in Wikipedia : 'Beijing (pronounced /beɪˈdʒɪŋ/ (deprecated template)or /beɪˈʒɪŋ/ in English'. How can /beɪˈdʒɪŋ/ be not recommended when all dictionaries, including the OED and the Merriam - Webster Dictionary, give this transcription either being the first option together with /beɪˈʒɪŋ/ (m-w.com) or the only given way (the OED)? Besides, a lot of sites, such as http://www.foxnews.com/story/2008/08/16/how-to-pronounce-beijing-nbc-seems-unsure/, say just the opposite, /beɪˈʒɪŋ/ is the incorrect way of pronouncing the city name and /beɪˈdʒɪŋ/ is the appropriate one. Was the person to write the article in Wikipedia right in saying that Beijing pronounced with a 'dʒ' sound is a 'deprecated template'?
