Abstrak

There are some features of academic writing and hedging is the one of features of academic writing. There are seven expression that represnt the use of hedging in scientific English. They are modal auxilary verb, modal lexical verb, approximately degree quantity and time, adjective, adverb and noun, introductory phrase, if clause and compound hedges. Hedging is a linguistic feature which conveys of the fundamental characteristic of science of doubt and scepticism. Hedges can defined as the expression of doubt and uncertainty such as may, might, could, seem, consider, etc. Hedges are very important role in academic writing since it is necessary to make decision about our stance on particular subject, or the strength of claim we are making. Hedges can perform the following three functions: (1) Accuracy oriented hedges, (2) Writer oriented hedges and (3) Reader oriented hedges. The objectives of this research are: (1) To identify the types of hedging in the Discussion Section in Asian EFL Journal Published in September 2011 Volume 13 Issue 3. (2) To identify the functions of hedging in the Discussion Section in Asian EFL Journal Published in September 2011 Volume 13 Issue 3. The method used in this research is descriptive qualitative research method. The data of this research is hedging in the Discussion Section in Asian EFL Journal Published in September 2011 Volume 13 Issue 3. The data are collected from 7 articles in the discussion section in Asian EFL Journal Published in September 2011 Volume 13 Issue 3. The data source in this research is Asian EFL Journal Published in September 2011 Volume 13 Issue 3. As the result of analysis data, I draws some conclusion that show frequency of the types hedging found in the Discussion Section in Asian EFL Journal Published in September 2011 Volume 13 Issue 3; They are modal auxiliary verb (37.78%), modal lexical verbs (14.90%), adjectival, adverbial and nominal modal phrases ( 21.85% ), approximators of degree, quantity, frequency and time (11.92% ), introductory phrases (5.29%), if clauses (3.97%), compound hedges (4.30%). This finding shows that Asian EFL Journal prefer to use modal auxiliary when making claims and stance in the Discussion Section because by using hedging devices of modal auxiliary verb the writer want to show their confidence in the truth of what they state in the discussion section. I draws some conclusion that show frequency of the functions of hedging found in the Discussion Section in Asian EFL Journal Published in September 2011 Volume 13 Issue 3; They are Accuracy Oriented (77.90%), Writer Oriented (14.96%), Reader Oriented (7.14%). This finding shows that Asian EFL Journal prefer to use Accuracy Oriented when making claims because by using hedging devices of modal auxiliary verb and approximately degree quantity and time the writers want certainty or uncertainty what they state. I considers hedging is very important in academic writing. So, English Lecturers must teach students how to identify and use hedging devices effectively and properly not only in making English Skripsi, but also in the other English Writings like journal.
