Say the ‘J’!
Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:27 am)

Thanks to Richard Bartle's post about Beijing pronunciation, it sparked me to make my own comment about something that's been bothering me since the opening ceremonies.

SAY THE J!

It's bay jing, not bei zhing!

In America it seems common to make fun of Asian people because they can't pronounce 'L's and 'R's properly, but every hour on the news they can't say the 'j'!

I don't understand why this is so hard! Nobody calls me 'Zhacob,' why can't they pronounce Beijing?
