    I will help you to cook dinner tonight.

    Which one is correct?

    I read the first sentence in an English book, how will I come to know where to use bare infinitive? mean where to ignore "to" before verb? Is there any formula, rule etc for it? Would you please advice me any article, book or link where I should get this topic.

    Thank you !

    Re: To

    'Help' is one of the very few verbs in English that can be followed by either a to- or a bare infinitive. There is oo difference at all in the meanings.
