    Could anybody clarify it to me? what´s the difference between "for while and awhile"?

    It would be kindly appreciated if someone could help me.

    Re: For While x awhile

    Hard to tell without the full sentence.
    "awhile" = a short time
    "for while" would be used to introduce a comparison;
    ' for while I understand English, I am not a grammarian."
