THEORY: Modal particles in German

I've recently wondered about whether there is a detailed description of
_Abtönungspartikel_ (I think it's called 'modal particles') in German, and I found
this today at work (shame on me! :-P): http://edoc.ub.uni- -- I haven't read all 200-odd pages
yet since I'm still at work and have stuff to do. However0 from browsing
through the file it seems to be quite detailed, so I thought it might be of
interest to this list. The downside OTOH is that it's completely in German. I
haven't yet looked whether an English translation exists -- the author is not a
native speaker himself as it seems, so there might be one.
