Elaboration is the process of adding more information to existing, relatively simple information to create a more complex, emergent whole. It involves developing an idea by incorporating details to amplify the original simple idea. It is the process of enhancing ideas and objects by providing nuance and more detail.[1] [2] Elaboration may involve planning or executing a task with painstaking attention to numerous parts or details.
