Summary In traditional grammars up to the 20th century, discourse particles recieved very little attention. Only in the last century did some publications discuss discourse particles - and even then only from the perspective of their discourse and pragmatic functions. The current volume presents 11 new articles that take a fresh look at discourse particles from the perspective of formal syntax and semantics, both diachronically and synchronically
