Wouldn't the use of the word 'into' in the sentence "I'm into Shakespeare right now" qualify as a verb? -Fbv65edel 19:51, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
No, that isn't the case. "To be" is the verb in that case, and "into" remains a preposition. I do have a separate question, though. Would there ever be a reason to use "in to" rather than "into?"--Pirsqed 16:07, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
- I'd guess that there are cases where a verbal phrase includes "in", which might be followed by "to" as a separate preposition, though I can't think of a good example. Also, of course, any place where "to" should occur as part of an infinitive verb it would be incorrect to use "into": "He goes in to eat." --Xyzzyva 22:55, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
into's real meaning...
Into, in America, is a way of mathematics. For example, 3 into 9 = 3. It is a type of division.
