Hello, Yama,

Yama posted:

Can " please " be used as a verb to mean  " beg " or " ask " ?

No, it can't.

Yama posted:
I mean, are these two sentences the same?

1) I begged him to help me.
2) I pleased him to help me.

No. Only the first sentence works. The second is ungrammatical. But you can say:

1a) I begged/asked him to please help me.

In (1a), we understand that the begging/asking involved the word "please."
