"That being said, not too many people would like to have 12 dogs to stay in their houses."
How do we explain the former part of the sentence grammatically " That being said?"
Thanks a lot!
Grammatically, it's a pronoun + gerund & past particple. It means something like 'while accepting what you have said, here's an additional idea/extension'.
