I've reached an impasse with my girlfriend (both non-native speakers) about this sentence she used:
Maybe we didn't have enough of it for it to become routine again and help measuring time
To me, the use of "measuring time" instead of "measure time" after "help" is intuitively wrong. Alternatively you could use "help with/in measuring time". She insists that "help measuring time" is correct because "measuring" is an argument of help.
If possible can we get a syntactical explanation of this issue?
