My student's Odyssey i-xii by W.B. Stanford has a sketch of the Homeric language. This is his summary after a quick list of the particles, which I thought some others would appreciate:

"Homer's use of particles is copious, fluid and perplexing."

Copious, Yep.
Fluid, Well... it slows the flow of my reading.
perplexing, Absolutely.
