Student or Learner
I often say that: I wait for you to finish.
But can i say that : I wait for you for finishing ???
Are both of them similar in meaning ?
What circumstance are "to" and "for" similar in ?
Are there any rule of which prepositions can be used equivalently ?
P/s: Please correct the mistakes of my sentences if you are not reluctant .
Sorry for my English if it's dificult to understand or impolite. I'm bad in English.
Hello Mr V.,
Usually, you would say:
1. I'll wait for you to finish.
"I wait for you for finishing" would not be used.
