"A theory of particle interactions which successfully describes electromagnetism, the weak interactions, and the strong interactions. QCD and Electroweak." These are guage theories of the forces between elementary particles. No harm in using the term particle. Particle physicists do it all the time. The only theory I know which purports (hopefully) to directly derive properties of particles and forces is string theory. In string theory these paramenters are derived from the interaction of fundamental objects with the geometry of spacetime.
