2. can both mean "finally"? e.g.
a. at the end she got married.
or
b. in the end she got married.
3. would you say:
a. at the end of this book
or
b. in the end of this book ?

so what is the story behind the word "Read",e.g we say the sign reads "welcome", shouldn't it be "the sign is read as welcome"?
because the sign doesn't read anything, but it is read as something.
if this can be any exception, therefore we can also have "the letter will send" as a result of overgeneralization.

I have heard that some native speakers use active sentences where passive must be used.for example instead of saying: "the message will be sent to you" they say: "the message will send to you".
Though it is ungrammatical, how common you find this kind of structure?

I remember that once I read a grammatical point and that was: Don't say: "It is getting dark" it should be: "it is getting TO BE dark".
I just don't understand what is the reasoning behind it?!

What is the correct pattern of using the word "interview"?
does it need to be preceded by "with"?
I mean is it correct to say: "interview with someone OR interview someone"?
if both are used, then what is the difference? how can I tell when use which? :-)
