Is there any usage of these two wards together in English?- "wait forward", or 'wait' is always followed by the prep 'for'?
thank you for helping
You can not say wait forward.
We usually say wait (for sb/sth) which means 1 ~ to stay where you are or delay doing sth until sb/sth comes or sth happens:
• I’ve been waiting (for) twenty minutes. • Wait for me! • We’re waiting for the rain to stop before we go out.
2 ~ (for sth) to hope or watch for sth to happen, especially for a long time:
[V] Leeds United had waited for success for eighteen years. • This is just the opportunity I’ve been waiting for. • He’s waiting for me to make a mistake. •
3 (be waiting) (of things) to be ready for sb to have or use:
[V] There’s a letter waiting for you at home. • [V to inf] The hotel had a taxi waiting to collect us.
4 [V] to be left to be dealt with at a later time because it is not urgent:
I’ve got some calls to make but they can wait until tomorrow. • I’m afraid this can’t wait. It’s very important.
