If you’ve ever been attending an academic institution, you’ve certainly conducted an in-depth research into some matter – be it deep-sea volcanic activity, bird migration or the true causes of the American Civil War. I picked these topics totally randomly, and it just goes to show that you can do an in-depth research into pretty much ANYTHING.
Some research, however, no matter how profound and comprehensive it is, is bound to return some imprecise and misleading conclusions, so I always like to question everything I hear, see or read in the mainstream media.
Not that I’m some mad conspiracy theorist, it’s just that I’ve heard a lot of contradictory information about a wide variety of subjects over the years, and now I’m quite cautious when it comes to making important decisions in life.
An allegedly in-depth research may turn out to be nothing more than just a set of cherry-picked data confirming this or that particular opinion commissioned by some corporation who’s going to benefit greatly in terms of increased profits when the report is released to the general public.
Now, have you a very good idea of how the collocation “in-depth research” is used in real life English conversations?
If not – make sure to watch the video above where I’m using this collocation in a lot of sample sentences!
Thanks for tuning in,
