Subject: Query: Hedges & Intensifiers

For a dissertation on metadiscourse about accuracy, I'm looking
for information (especially references) on the meaning, scope,
distribution, and/or use of hedges (such as, but not limited to,
constructions like "kind of," "sort of," "like," and "or whatever")
and also intensifiers (like "really" and "very," as well as related
issues like the referential scope of words like "always" and
"everyone"). Please email me if possible; if there's interest I'll
post a summary.

Thanks,

Liz Wade

Does anybody have a reference to a paper of Shibatani's on
passives in Philippine languages?
