comment What does “even so” mean in the following passage?
I think you're right about all that. I also don’t know that what Kipling puts in the mouths of subcontinentals is any more unusual or archaic than what they themselves actually put there. :)

comment A recent trend in pronouncing “the”
The vowel will be reduced in unstressed position, especially under the fast speech rules operative here. Good luck hearing a difference between a reduced [ɨ] or [ɪ̈] and a complete [ə]. This is hard even for people trained to do it, and virtually impossible for those who are not. That means you will not be aware of what’s really happening and therefore are apt to mischaracterize it.
