Let's assume you and someone else (say: Dr. Adam) are giving speech in a meeting. Dr. Adam says something and after his remarks and statements, you'd like to say:
- I accept Dr. Adam's statements and as a proof to this fact I would like to say that...**
Note: here you just want to approve Dr. Adam's statements and add some and continue your own words and where the emphasis is on "approval" rather than "expansion"? Also, I need to start the sentence with "to"! "To approve what Dr. Adam mentioned..." or "in order to approve what Dr. Adam mentioned..."
- I accept Dr. Adam's words and just in order to add some more points to his previously mentioned statements I would like to say that...
How can you summarize the above phrases using an idiom or expression?
E.g. regarding #2. I know the structure: "To amplify one's statements", which I don't know whether it encompasses all my intention.
Please kindly let me know about them.
