    There is something to be said for that.

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether there is a proper interpretation of the following sentence?

    There is something to be said for that. = You feel like there is something stuck in my throat. There is still a lot to be said for that.

    By analogy : There is still a lot to be done.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Vil, your question is a little unclear.

    There is something to be said for that =There is some basis for your belief/statement

    "I never give my credit card number to anyone over the phone."

    "There is something to be said for that." - I am in agreement of your belief or action. There could be a value statement made about that belief.
