    So you say

    "Toddy Beamish disagreed with everything that Fotheringay said, and drove him to the limit of his patience. "So you say," answered Beamish whenever Fotheringay spoke."

    What does "So you say" mean or imply in the above?

    Re: So you say

    "So you say" is generally used to mean "Well, you might say (and believe) that but I don't agree". There would probably be a slight emphasis on the word "you" when spoken.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
