How can I say that I mostly agree with somebody's statement.

    Just to clarify: do you mean that your level of agreement with someone's statement is high, but not total; or do you mean that, of the things that were said you agree with some, but not others? – SteveES Apr 13 '17 at 14:43

It's a twofold question but before you give any further detail, here's a general explanation:

  1. "I mostly agree with what you said" - This refers to how much you agree with somebody's statement. Based on the word mostly, here's a chart for you:

level of agreement from 100% to 0%

  1. "I agree with mostly everything that you said" - This refers to the amount of information you agree with.

    • I agree that most of what you said is true, but not everything.
    • I have a few doubts about some things that you said.

    Hmm... I would say "I agree with most of everything that you said." – user3169 Apr 13 '17 at 16:55

    @user3169 The phrasing "most of everything" seems strange to me (AmE). I might say "I agree with most of what you said." or "I agree with almost everything that you said". – ColleenV Apr 13 '17 at 18:27
  • @ColleenV I would say, "I agree with mostly everything you said." – SovereignSun Apr 14 '17 at 5:41
