「Sentence Ending Particles」
There are many sentence-ending particles in Japanese. Used commonly in the spoken language, these particles, along with the tone of voice in which they are used, help convey emotional nuances, often without actually altering in any way the explicit content of the sentence: e.g., onegai shimasu, onegai shimasu ne, and onegai shimasu yo are all similar that they express a request, but are softened or emphasized by the appended particle. Furthermore, certain sentece-ending particles are used predominantly by men, others by women. Some particles have both end-of-sentence and mid-sentence usages, such as ga, ka, kara, made, no, keredomo, no ki, kuse ni, -tara, mono o, tomo and yara.
