Hello everybody!I don’t think that they’re always exactly equivalent. Help + bare infinitive sầu is used when the person who helps takes part in the action of helping. “She helped me clean the house” means that we cleaned the house together. In these cases “to” can always be inserted.But let’s take the following sentence: “The President gave a speech that helped me lớn understand the origin of the troubles”. In this instance the help is more general, it has the sense of broadening the mind: the speech didn’t literally participate in the effort of understanding. When this is the meaning of “help”, I feel that omitting the “to” would result in awkwardness. Do you agree with me on that?Skin

No. I do not see the problem either with She helped me khổng lồ clean the house or with The President gave sầu a speech that helped me understand the origin of the troubles. Besides, the two statements are not parallel. And, her helping me clean the house does not have to be physical. It may be inspirational. I bởi, however, prefer not to use "to" because it is acceptable and convenient.
I think all of the ideas above are convincing enough. However, is there really no exact rule khổng lồ distinguish the difference? I go to school & my teacher told me almost exactly the same as Skin. But in my own perspective, I vì chưng think of something a little more different khổng lồ share here. Let"s compare these two sentences:- He helps me vì chưng my homework.- He helps me to lớn vày my homework.To what I feel is that, if sb helps you bởi vì sth, he physically helps you either with you or hyên alone. So, "he helps me vì chưng my homework" means he does it for me since I can"t really bởi it. When sb helps you to vị sth, he simply tell you how lớn vày it. Therefore, "he helps me to vày my homework" means he helps me lớn have sầu enough ability to lớn bởi vì what I don"t understand. He may show me the clues or any techniques to discern the homework and only then can I bởi it myself. With the interference of "to", the sentence make the subject physically uninvolved in the actual object.However, I don"t know whether my idea can be generally applied or not!
