    use the verb "help"?

    Could you show me the way to use the verb "help"? I see we often use this verb in either structure " help+object+bare verb" or "help+object+ to-infinitive"? And what is the difference between them?

    I'll help you to change the wheel.

    I'll help change the wheel.

    All three are possible. There is no difference in meaning, except that #3 can be addressed both to 'you' and to some other person.
