    help in/with

    Dear Friends,

    I wonder whether my intuition is correct:

    'help in' is generally followed by the Gerund or some noun
    'help with' is more frequently followed by some noun (rather than by the Gerund)

    Thank you for your help.

    I think you should doff this idea.
