By this definition should be understood not only the words that give emphasis to another word as a constituent of a sentence, an emphasis that we express by intonation (20 Obs. 2), but also those which are only placed after a word in order to further specify its meaning: these words must not be equated with suffixes (20 b.). They will be dealt with one by one and it is hoped to produce convincing evidence that it is difficult to give them another name. They have so many meanings that there is a risk of creating misunderstanding if they are given a more significant name. In treating of these words, it will be obvious that even more must be said about word-order than was done before.1
