#GRAMMARTRIVIA: Verb + Preposition (IN or INTO)

Howdy, fellas! How’s everything going? I hope it’s going really nice! :D

Anyway, I’d like to talk about grammar, which is ‘Verb + Preposition (IN or INTO)’. Here we go! #GrammarTrivia

1) Verb + IN >> Believe IN, specialize IN, succeed IN. Study the following examples. #GrammarTrivia

Believe IN: “Do you BELIEVE IN God?” (=do you believe that God exists?) #GrammarTrivia

Believe IN: “I BELIEVE IN saying what I think. (= I believe it is right to say what I think) #GrammarTrivia

Specialize IN: “Helen is a lawyer. She SPECIALIZES IN company law.” #GrammarTrivia

Succeed IN: “I hope you SUCCEED IN finding the job you want.” #GrammarTrivia

2) Verb + INTO >> Break INTO, crash/drive/bump/run INTO, divide/cut/split INTO. Study the following examples. #GrammarTrivia

Break INTO: “Our house was BROKEN INTO a few days ago but nothing was stolen.” #GrammarTrivia

Crash/drive/bump/run INTO: “He lost control of the car and CRASHED INTO a wall.” #GrammarTrivia

Divide/cut/split something INTO: “The book is DIVIDED INTO three parts.” #GrammarTrivia

Divide/cut/split something INTO: “CUT the meat INTO small pieces before frying it.” #GrammarTrivia

Therefore, that’s how we use ‘Verb + Preposition (IN or INTO)’. I hope this discussion helps you. #GrammarTrivia
