Title: English Syntax and Argumentation, 3rd Edition
Written By: Bas Aarts
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=280377
Series Title: Palgrave Modern Linguistics
Description:

'The emphasis on argumentation in this textbook is particularly useful. The
writing is clear and appropriate for undergraduate students. The exercises
are meaty and fun to do.' - Thomas B. Klein, Georgia Southern University, USA

'A book that really understands the key issues for students, and helps them
to appreciate what syntax is about.' - Laura Rupp, Vrije Universiteit
Amsterdam, Netherlands

This successful textbook gives students a thorough grounding in the basics
of sentence structure and acquaints them with the essentials of syntactic
argument. Now updated and expanded, the third edition features an
additional chapter on grammatical indeterminacy, a case study on
subordinating conjunctions and prepositions, and new exercises.
