    I will do that.

    We tend to call that "swallowing" a letter, but swallowing and eating are closely connected, of course.

    Note my changes above. You need to mark out the words you are talking about in some way. I have used quotation marks. You could use italics or put them in bold. Remember to put a space after every comma and every full stop.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
