    in + sentence?

    Dear Friends,

    I wonder if I can use the preposition 'in' in front of sentences:

    In 'The water is hot' irony is apparent if the water is actually cold in the moment of speaking.

    Thanks for your help.

    Best,

    Palinkasocsi

    Yes, that's normal, but you should put a comma after the title.
