    Re: appropriate word

    You could say "formulate/develop a theory".

    Should it be (no semi-colon here) "setting", "founding", "discovering" or something else?
    Note my corrections above. Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter, end every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark and to make the words you are querying or suggesting stand out in some way (in quotation marks, for example).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
