Now, "would you help me, please" sounds bit less insistent to me than using could, I suppose because it's asking if one is willing to help rather than if one is able to. "Won't you help me" usually doesn't go with "please" since it is really asking if the person is unwilling to help even though he should. (Edit: I note the exception to this of "won't you pleeease, please help me" from the Beatles song mentioned in another answer. When you do use won't you please in this sense, it is particularly insistent. There's a flavor almost of begging in the song.)

Sentence length tends to require "please" to be moved to the beginning. Consider the following: "Could you help me find my light-brown work shoes that I just bought, please? " "Could you please help me find my light-brown work shoes that I just bought?" The latter introduces politeness earlier while also focusing the sentence on the important information.

Commuters around the world waste a couple of hours of lifetime per day due to traffic jam. Many people laud public transport as the best solution to this problem. Convenient and affordable as they are, bus and metro do not seem to appeal many travelers for many reasons. Thus, in this essay, I would argue that providing free public transport 79/79 the whole week does not make much sense.

These are a random series of mind tools. Mind tools are just that: thought-tools to help your mind build into a stronger entity. You don 8767 t have to learn any new spiritual words, there are no exercises, you don 8767 t have to learn or remember anything here. Mind tools are simple thoughts that clarify something in your head, help your thought process evolve into something more efficient, healthy, powerful, capable. You just read them, and they start to work.

There are options that can help you cope with, manage, make less painful, or solve (if they can be 8766 solved 8767 ) your problems. I have heard so many people say, 8775 I 8767 ve tried everything ! 8776 and, 8775 Nothing works, no one can help me! 8776 and, 8775 I don 8767 t know what to do ! 8776 .

Context is very important as well a more insistent request for help can go with a more pressing need for it and not be impolite. If for example, a child came up to a stranger and said "Could you please help me? I'm lost." the child would probably be thought of as very well-mannered, keeping a cool head in a frightening situation. On the other hand, if a shopper asked a clerk "could you please help me?" instead of "could you help me, please?" it would typically convey a sense of irritation at having been made to wait too long. I say typically because one can always use tone of voice to change this.

By way of conclusion, environmental-friendly public transportation may be, they remain quite uncomfortable and disahvantaged in some aspects. Therefore, I believe that policy makers and the authorities should come up with more alternatives as traffic congestion is unlikely to be solved in a forseeable future.

Also in the comments, CoolHandLouis makes a number of points about the limitations of carrying out basic searches of English corpora:

However, in this situation I would say "Would you mind helping me, please?".
In my opinion it sounds friendlier to the person you're asking.

Although it is human nature and in the English language to soften our words with adverbs in order to appear more polite, it's up to you how you would like to use it.
