Synonyms of "Into" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Into and Onto ?
A: 'Into' implies something/someone going inside something. It can also mean something coming into contact with something else. 'Onto' implies being on something, or on top of it.

Into Examples:
"He crashed in to the car." That's an example of it being used in the sens of coming into contact with something else. You couldn't say, "He crashed onto the car", because that would mean he was ON TOP of he car he crashed into, which would be insane.
"I put the food in the microwave." That's an example of something being put inside something else. You couldn't say, "I put the food onto the microwave", because that just means you set it on top without putting it inside, which means it won't get heated up.

Onto Examples:
"He climbed onto the roof." This means he got on the roof, obviously. You can't say, "He climbed into the roof", because that would somehow mean he was INSIDE the roof rather than on top of it.

Once you get the hang of it, it's not too hard! Lemme know if you have any follow-up questions.

Q: What is the difference between In to and Into ?
A: As a native speaker, I think it is a mistake. "Into the tunnel" is correct in your sentence, not "in to". You are correct that you should always use "into".
The only use of "in to" I can think of is when you mean "in order to".
"At the store, my wife waited in the car while I went in to buy a shirt", meaning the I went inside the store in order to buy a shirt. But 99.9% of the time, you are going to use "into".
Q: What is the difference between In and Into ?
A: The difference between them is whether or not there is movement. Into is used when something or someone is going or being put into another location.
e.g 1) She dived into the water
2) he threw the letter into the fire

Whereas IN is used to describe where someone or something already is.
e.g 1) She is in her room
2) the toy is in the box
Q: What is the difference between Into and In ?
A: Into means something is entering inside from outside. for example: "I walked into this room through that door."

In means inside something. for example: " She was sitting in her room. "

So the difference is "into" is used for something from outside coming inside and "in" means that something is already inside.

Q: Into His presence Would I Enter now. Does this sound natural?
A: Correct but not usual placement of phrases and words. Sounds like a poem, song or Bible verse type phrasing.

The most common arrangement of the words would be:
I would enter into his presence now.

But even this would probably be said only if you were going to meet a king or God. It is the phrase "into his presence" that seems a little lofty.

For a regular person, you could say, "I am going in to meet (with) him now." This could be going in to see what a doctor has to say. Or meeting a professional to get a bid on some work. Or your boss, to be evaluated on your work performance or to ask for a raise.
