Abstract


Particles can be found in noun morphological forms and verb morphological forms to denote meaning in wider and deeper contexts. The aim of this study is to identify all those particles in modern Tamil and classify them based on their occurrence in morphological forms and phrases and explain their contextual/functional significance and explain their functional importance in achieving adequacy and coherency in language structure and language use with reference to modern standard Tamil focusing on competence and performance of the language users.
