Dear List Members
Some time ago I asked whether anybody had any useful references or programs
concerning the use of concordancing to locate hedging terms or devices in
written academic discourse.
Sadly, although I received several requests that I should post a summary of
replies received, only one list member was in a position to assist me on
this occasion - Peter Crompton, who referred me to his paper, which others
interested in this research area might well also find useful:
Crompton, P. (1997). Hedging in Academic Writing: Some Theoretical Problems.
English for Specific Purposes 16/4, 271-287.
