Academic writing is a special genre of writing that prescribes its own set of rules and practices. It has objective to inform to readers. It has eight main features. One of them is hedges. Hedges are linguistic expressions which are used by authors or speakers to soften their statement or an idea. It is necessary to make decision about our stance on a particular subject or the strength of the claims we are making. There are seven expressions of hedges that are composed by Salager-Meyer. The example of those hedges, such as can, should, assume, claim, usually, etc. Hedges here are as the expression of doubt and uncertainty. Besides that, Hyland summarized the functions of hedges into two types. They are content motivated hedges (accuracy based hedges and writer based hedges) and reader motivated hedges. Hedges are very important role in academic writing. Skripsi belongs to academic writing because it is different from ordinary writing. So, hedges has important role in making skripsi. The objective of this research is to identify the types of hedges and to find out the functions of hedges used in the review to related literature section of undergraduate students’ skripsi of English Education Department of Teacher Training and Education Faculty of Muria Kudus University.
