    Deal teachers,

    "Elected in a landslide in 2008, Mr Ma brought tensions with China to their lowest state in six decades, forged business agreements across the Taiwan Strait, and help keep an export-dependent island from being swept up in the global financial crisis. "

    In the above paragraph, why use "help" not "helped"? Please help me understand. Thank you very much.

    Re: Help/helped


    It looks like a typographical error (a mistake in a printed publication such as a book or a newspaper) to me. As you say, it should be helped. I wouldn't worry about it, you are quite right!
