Hi,

I couldn't find any such meaning of for come in a dictionary which fitted in the given context.

Here's a comment on the basic structure of the sentence.

The clause 'which fitted in the given context' seems here to relate to 'dictionary', but is really intended to relate to 'meaning'.

So, it's better to reword the sentence. eg

In a dictionary, I couldn't find any such meaning of come which fitted in the given context.

Best wishes, Clive

Let me try.

I couldn't find any such meaning of come in a dictionary which fitted in the given context.

Here, the first preposition "of" can be replaced with "for" as it suits the context more.

A logical doubt: What is that "a dictionary which fitted in the given context" ? I do not understand the last prepositional phrase "in the given context".

But for these, the sentence is right.

Thanks
