    If something awaits you, it will happen to you.

    I wonder what surpirses await us today.

    但a dough不是一件可以等著在未來happen的事件

    They were awaiting the birth of their first child.

    birth也是一個事件(等著要發生)

    There's a package waiting for you in the office.

    東西等人(這是擬人化的說法)

    所以There is a dough waiting to be rolled out.

    或My dough is waiting to be rolled out.

    才是正確的用語。

    2013-06-21 20:54:23 補充:

    My dough is waiting me to roll out.

    這裡的to roll out就不能用被動式了

    因為me是受詞,在邏輯上是[受詞補語]不定詞的主詞

    2013-06-21 20:59:36 補充:

    wait是不及物動詞,而await是及物動詞,所以

    My dough is waiting for me to roll it out.才對

    前面的補充句寫錯了。抱歉。

    2013-06-22 10:14:23 補充:

    更正:wait是不及物動詞

    應寫成There is a dough waiting for me to roll it out.

    或My dough is waiting for me to roll it out.

    先前我的寫法錯誤.抱歉.
