Abstract

Sari, Fitria. "Hedging Devices Used in the Introductions of Theses Written by Linguistics' Students of the English Depai lment in 2007" A Thesis Submitted as Partial Fulfillment of The Requirement for Sarjana Degree of The English Department Faculty of Humanities, Airlangga University, 2008. Academic writing differs from speech in a number of ways. Writers, who are doing academic writing, need to convince and influence their readers. The writers need to state their claims with accuracy by using a tool namely hedging. Hedging as one of the features is analyzed in this study. According to Hyland (1994) hedging implies being less than fully committed to the certainty of the referential information given. This study examined the use of hedging in the introduction of theses written by linguistics' students in 2007. Fifteen theses were taken as the sample of this study. In analyzing hedging devices, this study uses Hyland's theory on hedging (1994). The study found four categories of hedging devices occurred in samples: modal lexical verbs, modal auxiliary verbs, adverbial & adjectival and modal nouns. Of the four categories; modal auxiliary verbs most frequently occur
