    We expect the posters to be more explicit in their questions.
    It is difficult to anticipate all of their doubts.

    Look up those words in a dictionary and try to write down some sentences with them.
    Then post here some of these sentences for discussion.

    You can have a legitimate expectation, but not anticipation.
