Abstract


The fuzziness of the essential characteristics of the non - artificial language study , hence linguistics can not be avoided . Now , fuzzy language study is known as a new growth point of language science . Hedges and as a fuzzy language family , which is a common phenomenon in language communication . Its main function is through the the fuzzy vocabulary quantitative , the true extent of the delimitation of discourse or scope limited , making the language more polite and decent Context , rigorous and comprehensive , flexible and effective . News reports as a public discourse , in order to achieve a certain stylistic effect Hedges and necessary , but also has been recognized by the community . Hedges on News Writing , however , mostly concentrated in the English News , the comparative study of the news of the Japanese press as well as in the two languages ??is relatively small . More comparability of the two major newspapers - the Tokyo Shimbun and the Beijing Daily , the papers selected Japanese and Chinese newspapers using qualitative and quantitative experimental methods , through the five sections ( political , economic , social , sports, entertainment ) fuzzy the frequency of use of hedges , the distribution characteristics of comparative analysis . Reveals the similarities and differences between Japanese and Chinese news discourse Hedges and use . At the same time , I also Verschueren 's Adaptation Theory as the theoretical basis to adapt and communicative context to conform to the two aspects of linguistic context , analysis Hedges and use behind the successful use of hedges in news reports as well as Japanese and Chinese news discourse cause the underlying causes . This paper not only enriches the existing Hedges and research , but also helps the reader to further understanding of the role of the Chunichi Shimbun stylistic Hedges and strategy . Due to the small size of the study corpus , news selection is relatively concentrated, and the identification and classification of Hedges by hand ( statistical work carried out by professional software ) limitations inevitable . However, I believe that this thesis similar studies in the future will play a reference role .
