Understand the usage of the words given:

After consulting him and Nirmal Chander Singh, we decided to await confirmation from the GOC and Mountain Division.

You know the verb ‘wait’. But it is an intransitive verb. It doesn’t take a direct object; consequently, it cannot be cast into passive voice. Also, the past participle of the verb ‘to wait’ cannot act as an adjective.

‘The mother waited eagerly’ is a correct sentence as there is no direct object. But ‘The mother waited eagerly the answer from her son.’ is a wrong sentence. ‘The answer’ is the direct object. This sentence can be written by using the phrase ‘wait for’ as ‘The mother waited eagerly for the answer from her son.’ ‘Wait for’ can be taken as the transitive phrasal verb.

‘To await’ is a transitive verb and it does take a direct object.

For example, ‘The mother awaited the answer eagerly.’

The past participle of it can be used as an adjective.

The most awaited program started very late.

Note that the object of the verb ‘await’ is usually an inanimate object. We don’t usually await a person, but we await his answer/ call/ arrival/ letter.

There are more such words in English. All of them are not verbs.

For example: Aside, Ashore, Anew, Awake, Afoot.

Prefix ‘A’ provides a certain purpose in the formation of the word.

  1. Aside- to the side
  2. Ashore- towards the shore
  3. Afoot-on foot
  4. Anew- of new
  5. Apolitical- not political
  6. Asleep- in a state or manner

Use of although/ though/ even though/but

Read the following sentences.

  1. Although the café was crowded, we found a vacant table.
    Although Sadie has passed her test, she never drives.
    The clause with although can also come after the main clause.
    For example: We found a vacant table, although the café was crowded.
  2. Though I liked the pullover, I didn’t buy it.
    Though it was pouring cats and dogs, he set out for his journey.
    We can use though at the end of the sentence.
    For example: I liked the pullover; I didn’t buy it, though.
  3. We can use ‘even though’ in the same way.
    John looked quite fresh even though he had just recovered from jaundice.
    ‘Even though’ can be used at the beginning of the sentence also.
    ‘Even though’ I hate Gopal, I shall try to be nice with him.
    ‘Even though’ is stronger and more emphatic than ‘although’
  4. We can join two clauses with ‘but’.
    For example: We wanted to go abroad, but our passports were not ready.
    We use these words (although, though, even though, but) to show the contrast between two clauses or two sentences.
    Although, though, even though and but can be used as conjunctions to introduce afterthoughts, contrasts, or restrictions and conditions.

Mr. Umar I was watching a movie with my wife. Then I went to the kitchen to prepare tea.
The Inspector How many minutes did you spend in the kitchen?
Mr. Umar I think 10 or 15 minutes… I’m not sure….
The Inspector Did you prepare tea?
Mr. Umar Yes
The Inspector OK. Thanks.

The Inspector also asked Mrs. Umar some questions:

The Inspector So, you were alone at home, weren’t you?
Mrs. Umar Yes, I was. I called him immediately but he didn’t answer. 

The inspector was suspicious about Mr.Umar, so he asked him to come to the station for further questioning.

The Inspector You weren’t at home when the thief broke into your neighbour’s house. Where were you?
