    "after work/backs home/back home/when he backs home"

    1. Sara often prepares/cooks/serves dinner for her husband after work.
    2. Sara often prepares/cooks/serves dinner for her husband backs home.
    3. Sara often prepares/cooks/serves dinner for her husband back home.
    4.Sara often prepares/cooks/serves dinner for her husband when he backs home.
    5. Sara often prepares/cooks/serves dinner for her husband when he back home.


    It seems to me that #4 is grammatical. Am I correct, please?

    No. Only number 1 works. "When he backs home" is not grammatical.
