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.

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.
