Is it proper grammer to tag the word "awhile" onto the end of a sentence? For ex. You can set the table awhile.
Not a teacher
Awhile means 'for a short time' or 'briefly'.
I'll stay awhile (for a short time); then I must leave.
Stay awhile and rest.
I read awhile, then slept.
You can set the table briefly/for a short time? Sorry, the idea doesn't seem so clear.
