    to outline

    Hello,

    Could you please let me know if the verb to "outline" can have the same meaning as to "emphasize" (the importance of something)?

    For example: It shall be outlined that....

    Thank you for your help

    Guillaume

    Re: to outline

    Welcome to the forum, Guillaume.

    As it's your first post I will go easy on you for not using a dictionary.

    outline

    verb

    • 1 draw or define the outer edge or shape of.

    • 2 give a summary of.
    • (Word Reference dictionary)

    Now that's not the same as emphasise, is it?
