    Cool wait & await

    Hi,

    Can someone tell me the difference between "wait" & "await"? Can I say: "The Camels of the desert await you for a ride on the dunes"?

    Default Re: wait & await

    Await means wait for, so your sentence is correct (but there's no reason to capitalise camels).
