English speaker here: We would say "I am waiting on my daughter" as often as "for".
Why J'attends ma fille and not J'attend ma fille. I thought the 's' ending in attends was for plurals as in J'attends mes enfants. Merci!
No. There is absolutely no link between the "s" after a verb and the plural of the group that follows.
If you were to say "J'attends un homme" or "J'attends des hommes" it would be the same :
J'attends, tu attends, il attend, nous attendons, vous attendez, ils attendent.
Attendre is an re verb, not an er verb so it follows a different pattern. Also the s is used for the subject "tu"
Since English is not my 1st language I dont know why is my solution incorrect. I wrote: I wait my daughter.
