 Hi, friends.

You do know that words help us to express our ideas and thoughts. So, we should know the proper use of words. Well, are you confused about Wait vs Await.

1. Wait vs Await.

2. Wait or Await?

As Pickering says, ‘Far better is to know everything of a little than a little of everything.'

Please feel it and proceed.

Now, Lets move on:

Only one difference will clear your concept.

It is -

Wait - it means, while staying in one place for someone or something to happen, you allow time to go by.

Let's see:

1. I am waiting for her.

2. I am waiting to use her mobile.

3. He is waiting for me.

4. Don't wait for me, I will return very late.

5. Father is waiting for you.

But, Await meaning!

It is Simple.

Await - it means to wait for something.

It also means to wait in the future for someone or something.

Very Important:

Generally, after 'Wait', the prepositions-To or for are used.

1. I am waiting for him.

2. I am waiting to do the work.

    But, after 'Await', generally no Preposition is used.
