can somebody explain the grammar here "går in i"? I go in in the house? Is it wrong to say Jag går in huset?

The trick is that "in i" combine to a single preposition here. I'll break it down into literal English to display it more clearly:

  • jag - I
  • går - walk
  • in i - into
  • huset - the house

Why is it "in i huset" here but just "i vattnet" in another sentence

Why doesn't kommer in work here?

Why "in i huset" but "into the water" was "i vattnet" but not "in i vattnet"?
