    We will elaborate the DPR (detailed project plan). Is there another word that has simular meaning to elaborate?

    Re: elaborate

    Expatiate (I had to look that one up)
    Enlarge (upon)
    Flesh out
    Add details
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: elaborate

    Careful ostap77: It's normal to elaborate on something - 'Would you like to elaborate on your idea?'. (Note also that the verb doesn't have a schwa in the fourth syllable, as the adjective does; it's /ɪ'læbǝreɪt/.)
