Is it correct to [STRIKE]speak this way[/STRIKE] say the following?
1) Could you please help me take a look?
2) I was wondering if you could help me take a look.
They are both perfectly acceptable grammatically although not entirely clear in meaning. Do you want someone else to take a look in order to help you, or do you want to take a look but need someone's help to do so?
So, which one is correct?
"Could you help me take a look?"
"Could you help me to take a look"
I have just answered this in another thread of yours. Please do not ask the same question in two different threads.Further to the above, I'm not too sure when i should add in "to"
"Could you help me cook?" or "Could you help me to cook?"
"Could you help me carry my books?" or "Could you help me to carry my books?"
Is there a difference between the sentences?
