I’m not convinced I need to devote an entire grammar lesson on when to use into versus in to, but a friend of mine suggested it so I’ll give it a shot.

According to GrammarBook.com Blog,“one of the main uses of the preposition into is to indicate movement toward the inside of a place.”

•    After a long stretch apart, the girl jumped into her boyfriend’s arms.
•    The cat jumped into its padded perch overlooking the beach.

As far as in to, the adverb in is followed by the preposition to.

•    He turned the invoice in to his client.
•    The author wouldn’t give in to the demands of the publisher.

Is this an area you get hung up on or is it pretty cut-and-dried?
