please consider this sentence

"Tom has to postpone his transfer/transferring for two weeks waiting/awaiting a decision to grant a work permit."

let's me know they should be (transfer or transferring) and (waiting or awaiting)?

please help me with your explanation.

very thank you

I like 'transfer' (the appropriate noun is preferable to the gerund) and 'awaiting' (or 'waiting for').

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
1.) "transfer" yes, i think so. i understand it.

2.) await and wait are verb.

so, what's difference between await(v.) and wait(v.)?

very thank you [H]

Await = wait for

'I am awaiting your reply.'
'I am waiting for your reply.'
X 'I am waiting your reply.'
