To watch or look ahead expectantly for something not due to arrive or occur in a known, scheduled amount of time. Combines "pre-empt," "expect," and "anticipate."
She kept looking expectantly down the train track for her train even though she knew it was not due for another 30 minutes, as if watching for it would cause it to arrive sooner. = "to prespectipate".
