Online Repository of Particle Studies

We are excited to announce the release of the Online Repository of Particle Studies (ORPS): Scholarship on twelve particles and their combinations from the 16th century to present.

The Online Repository of Particle Studies is a searchable, sortable database designed to showcase the wealth of previous particle studies. An important tool for researchers, it includes information from the fourteen monographs on Greek particles that appeared between 1588 and 1993, as well as hundreds of dedicated articles, grammars, thesauruses, and lexica.

The ORPS database makes up the fifth volume of Particles in Ancient Greek Discourse: Five Volumes Exploring Particle Use Across Genres, a born-digital publication from the Hellenic Studies Series co-authored by Anna Bonifazi, Annemieke Drummen, and Mark de Kreij.

The first four volumes give insight into particle usage across five genres of ancient Greek discourse—epic, lyric, tragedy, comedy, and historiography—with the aim of exploring communicative strategies, cognitive processes, and the interactional dynamics of language production.
