I had already covered almost all of the content for another class, but this was a strange mix of very basic stuff 'what is a verb? The added chapters about discourse were interesting and clear though, and throughout the book most examples are well-given and well-explained. Yeah okay, so I didn't finish this book it's not my fault that I didn't have to learn everything from this book!!
The only downside of this book is that it can be a little inconsistent sometimes. We use a different method to draw the three at my university and I prefer that; it is much more consistent and logical. Apart from that, Aarts' book is clear and fairly easy to follow. I liked syntax much better than I thought I would. We did not really delve into the argumentation part, though, so I can't say much about that.
Oct 26, Nikola Janevski rated it it was amazing. This is a book I come to over and over again. It is the first book that helped me understand English Grammar instead of memorizing grammar rule. It focuses a lot on Function which I love. I highly recommend it but be prepared it is not for a serious learner of the English syntax.

Bas Aarts (2001). English Syntax and Argumentation
Written by a leading authority on the subject, the fifth edition of this bestselling book provides students with a thorough grounding in the essentials of sentence structure and the fundamentals of syntactic argumentation. Divided into four parts, it begins by examining the basic concepts that underpin the study of syntax, before moving on to more complex issues. The first part introduces the foundations of syntax, namely clauses and sentences; the second looks at the internal structure of phrases and the bridge between syntax and semantics; the third deals with syntactic argumentation; and the fourth focuses on argumentation and its application. Chapters feature clear explanations of technical terms, easy-to-follow examples and interactive exercises to illustrate key ideas.
