China in particular is an absolutely fascinating place to be. Culturally and politically and economically it's becoming more and more relevant. If you look at how China is perceived in different parts of the world, you can recognize it's very dynamic. It's also challenging what it thinks of itself.

WHAT DOES PARTICULAR MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Particular

In philosophy, particulars are concrete entities existing in space and time as opposed to abstractions. There are, however, theories of abstract particulars or tropes. For example, Socrates is a particular. Redness, by contrast, is not a particular, because it is abstract and multiply instantiated. Sybil Wolfram writes Particulars include only individuals of a certain kind: as a first approximation individuals with a definite place in space and time, such as persons and material objects or events, or which must be identified through such individuals, like smiles or thoughts. Some terms are used by philosophers with a rough-and-ready idea of their meaning. This can occur if there is lack of agreement about the best definition of the term. In formulating a solution to the problem of universals, the term 'particular' can be used to describe the particular instance of redness of a certain apple as opposed to the 'universal' 'redness'. See also type-token distinction The term particular is also used as a modern equivalent of the Aristotelian notion of individual substance.

Definition of particular in the English dictionary

The first definition of particular in the dictionary is of or belonging to a single or specific person, thing, category, etc; specific; special. Other definition of particular is exceptional or marked. Particular is also relating to or providing specific details or circumstances.

But the vast majority of software is actually pretty generic.
