Phrase "mind you" #1 (permalink) Sat Jul 29, 2006 5:30 am   Phrase "mind you"
 

Hi teachers!!!!

I have found an expression " Mind you" look at the sentence:

Dara failed his final exam. Mind you, he is a studied-hard person.

Is in this chance the phrase mind you the same meaning to the word but?

How to use this,mind you, Phrase?

Thankssssss!

It doesn't mean "but". It means something like, "Pay attention, because I want to stress my next point."
