    fit in/fit into

    He is worth of respect.

    The adjective 'worthy' should be used.

    Should I say 'worth' doesn't 'fit in' or 'fit into' the sentence? If neither is correct, what is the correct term?

    Many thanks.

    Both are correct.

    Re: fit in/fit into

    I'd say it doesn't fit the sentence, or fit into the sentence. "Fit in" is usually intransitive, as in "he went to a new school, but the kids didn't like him at first, so it took him a long time to fit in."
