    It's not possible to correct it because it's not clear what you are trying to say.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello,


    Are you referring to something like this:

    Tom knocks on Mona's door.

    Mona (opens door): Hello, Tom. I did not know that you intended to visit me.

    Tom: I had nothing to do, so I decided to just drop by and say hello.

    Mona: Oh, that's so nice of you. Actually, though, I was just starting to eat dinner when you knocked on my door.

    Tom: No problem. Do have your dinner first. I will just wait in the living room until you have finished.

    I'm afraid this doesn't make sense, though for some reason the TheParser likes it.

    First you need to reread 5jj's answer to your previous post, and then ask your question again.

    Additionally, in your thread titles you need to include the word or phrase you are asking about; 'do had your dinner' would have been a good title for this.

    When you post again, please remember that you must start every new sentence with a capital letter. You must also end every sentence with the relevant punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
