I

I live in India and I have noticed that in Indian English it is normal to use the noun "doubt" as one would use the noun "question" in Western English.

Examples:

"He had many doubts regarding the subject, so he asked his teacher to answer those doubts."

"Sir, I have a doubt, what is the square root of 64?"

Is this usage of the noun "doubt" unique to Indian English, or is it also acceptable in Western English?

  • Definitely the exact same question. I even live in the same area as is being discussed in that post. I guess this question can be deleted. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Feb 13 '16 at 4:58

  • Alright, but the question you linked to and the others linked to in that answered my doubt (sic) quite thoroughly. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Feb 13 '16 at 5:06
