    1. The link provided by Corum led you to what is probably the most fundamental rule of English word order. If you did not find that helpful for a starter, perhaps you might care to be more specific in what you wish to know.

    2. If you wish more people to give up their time to help you, it might also be advisable to be less dismissive of help when it is offered.

    There is no fundamental rule that applies generally in all circumstances.

    I have two more different questions.

    1. I should give up my time so as to help someone or work instead of someone.

    Have I got it properly?

    2. Should "so as/in order" have been used between "my time" and "to help"

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You don't need 'so as' or 'in order'. Just leave them out. I don't understand what your last phrase starting with 'or work...' is meant to add.
