    The meaning is similar. However, they are usually used slightly differently:

    We usually put in particular after the word that it refers to:
    – I like all types of tea, but Earl Grey in particular.

    We usually put particularly before the word it refers to:
    – I like all types of tea, particularly Earl Grey.
