Comment 25 by veggiemanuk :

'So, if there is a Higgs field, it turns out that there has to be a new particle associated with this field, and this is the Higgs particle.'

I can never remember which way round it is but shouldn't that be, Boson Field and Higgs Particle?

The "Higgs field" is a "bosonic field", the " Higgs particle" is a "boson"
