When should someone use awhile and a while? I know one is a noun. Would you please give me an example of each. I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    The adverb is awhile. Example:

    Please stay awhile and have a cup of coffee.

    The noun form is while. Example:

    I'll stay for a while, and I'd love a cup of coffee.

    Note that in the last usage, while is the object of the preposition "for."
