I am trying to find an expression which would meet my needs. In the report that I am currently writing I would like to explain that I have done a certain action in order to "put more weight/power" into a conclusion.
There is an expression for this purpose in the French language (mettre du poids dans), and I know that translating an expression from a language to another nearly never works. I tried to find the solution by asking Google but I guess I am not using the correct keywords... Does anyone would have any ideas?
I am actually trying to say that my action will carry more weight (thanks Rant) but I do not know how I should formulate it. I have started my sentence like this:
The investigation will also draw a timeline of activities in order to add expression to the previous arguments.
I have moved from conclusion to argument as it make more sense in the current context. How can I add an expression which means carry more weight?
