Chapter Summary

The term ‘particle’ is used in a broad sense to include all items that do not fall into the categories of noun, pronoun, adjective or verb. Some of the particles take nouns as their complement to express relations between elements in a clause, others take clauses as their complement to express relations between clauses. These two classes of particles are termed ‘prepositions’ and ‘clausal conjunctions’ respectively. This chapter brings together all the particles except the quantifiers and determiners. It discusses adverbs, prepositions and miscellaneous uninflected particles.

Keywords: adverbs; clausal conjunctions; particles; prepositions; uninflected particles
