    Question verb form

    Please tell me is there any difference between " help + bare infinitive" " help+ to infinitive " and " help+ V-ing " ?

    There's little or no difference between the two. The first is more common.

    I helped her washing the wishes.
    This is possible, and you may hear it, but I'd prefer:
    I helped her wash the dishes.

    It's just a matter of syle.
