I'm not a native English speaker, so my question might seem trivial. Anyway, I always thought "whose" would require no article for the following noun. To my surprise, it seems expressions like "a man whose the name is Bob" are quite common (on web pages at least).
edit: for examples of use, a simple google search on "whose the name" will yield results like
"the metadata object is added as a sibling name/value pair whose the name is the symbol..."
"this collection represents the birth of this herbarium whose the name is a recognition of his prominent contribution to the knowledge of the Haitian flora"
"Benghazi, a city whose the name derives from the Greek Berenike directly"
So my questions are:
- is adding the article a common way of saying?
- is that specific to some nouns or could you use it with anything, e.g. "whose the cat is black", "whose the height is 2m" ?
- is there a difference of meaning between the two variants?
