Hedging in Academic Writing and EAP Textbooks.
Hyland, Ken
English for Specific Purposes, v13 n3 p239-56 1994
Examines hedging in textbooks by focusing on the coverage of lexical items as markers of uncertainty and tentativeness. Tentative language continues to be a source of pragmatic failure in the writing of second-language science students. Hence, it is suggested that pedagogic writing materials would benefit from revisions based on authentic data. (69 references) (LR)
