The word "the" in Indian English seems to have a different function than in American English, and I'd like to understand it better. The first sentence of this article demonstrates what I mean:
Today in this article I would discuss about the Database Mail which is used to send the Email using SQL Server.
In American English, I'd write:
In today's article I will discuss Database Mail, which is used to send email using SQL Server.
Is that considered wrong or overly concise in Indian English?
What is the use of the additional "the"s in the original? Is this a typical pidgin construct or specific to Indian English? What rule of American English makes this sound awkward to my ears?
