    elaborate on

    "Elaborate on the DPR (detailed project plan) in more detail." Wouldn't add "in more detail". "Elaborate on" suggests to work something out in more detail?

    NOT A TEACHER.

    Yes, "in more detail" seems redundant here.

    I know that we say "elaborate on". Is it possible to say "elaborate the DPR"?

    It is correct to say "to elaborate a plan" if one means "to work out a plan in detail."

    See elaborate - definition of elaborate by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    I'm a Ukrainian native speaker. I would know if your Russian translation is 100% accurate.

    Hi ostap77,

    Much as I should like to meet your request I couldn’t do that.
    I’m not a God; I’m only your humble servant. I don’t know Russian perfectly so probably in my post above are a few errors.

    I figured that you know Russian so my only wish was to help you with the understanding of the usage of the “elaborate”.

    Here is a link where in my humble opinion Russian is perfect.

    «elaborate»

    If this wounds your national feeling please, don’t read it.

    I’m a fiery fan of your Jury Golubenko.

    Regards,

    V.
