I am looking for a word that describes something (e.g., a paper) that provides a very detailed viewpoint of some issue. In the Polish-Eglish dictionary I found the word "inquisitive," but it is not the proper word, I suppose, since it means "wanting to discover as much as you can about things, sometimes in a way that annoys people." Hence, a book ot a paper cannot be inquisitive. Could you help me with this?
It might depend on the context. In some contexts, you might want to say "thorough"; in others, simply "detailed".
What kind of sentence would you use the word in?
Hi, MrPedantic, thanks. It could be, for instance, "An inquisitive look at the problem leads to a conclusion that...," or "We shall not give an inquisitive description of stratification." (In the second sentence, both thorough and detailed fit, I suppose; but in the first one? I have no idea.)
