Look for in 'Can you help me look for my keys?' #1 (permalink) Mon May 25, 2009 13:25 pm   Look for in 'Can you help me look for my keys?'
 

Hi everybody,
1. Can you help me look for my keys?
Is the above sentence grammatically OK?
Is it better the following sentence instead of the above:
1a. I am looking for my key. Can you help me to find?
Thanks,

Sentence 1 is in perfect English grammar.

Sentence 1a is in horrible English grammar, particularly when it uses "find" without a direct object.
