There are plenty of examples, which explain the difference between wait and await as verbs in the middle of a sentence. However, what about at the end of a sentence?
In most of the examples, the verb await must have an expressed object.
I am awaiting your specific reply for this question.
They are awaiting the birth of their first baby.
On the other hand, wait in most of the examples does not require an object.
- I have been waiting for hours.
Yet, I could not find good examples explaining which of these are proper in cases where wait and await are not used us verbs. Here is my question: Is it acceptable to write, in a formal essay,
A) "Even though the future is not certain, the experts might know what is awaiting”. Or is it always
B) "Even though the future is not certain, the experts might know what is waiting”.
