There's a word I thought I knew at some point, but can no longer remember what it was.
I tried looking up various thesaurus websites to no avail.
Similar words to what I'm looking for, but not quite:
- Elaborate: too neutral -- I'm looking for a more negative connotation.
- Elucidate: too positive a connotation.
- Ruminate: The direction is correct, but it is about "thinking about something in too much detail" vs actually describing it so.
- Describe ad nauseam: 3 words, and awkward sounding.
Example sentence: "He began to ________ the topic"
To clarify, I'm looking for a verb.
