Dear linguists,

I am a pH. D student specialist in English language and
linguistics.Currently I'm working on my project which is about
'linguistic hedging'. Unfortunately I am unable to get any reference
about this subject because of the regional conditions which you might
be fully aware of . Therefore I should be much grateful and really
indebted to you if you would kindly send me some references about
'HEDGING'.I am sorry to disturb you but I am badly in need to your
help.  In fact I have a very limited access to the internet .

My mailing address is :

Miss EBA' M. ALRASSAM, UNIVERSITY OF MOSUL ,P.O BOX 11159 , MOSUL '
IRAQ .

Waiting your kind answer, thank you very much in advance.

                 EBA' M. Alrassam

                Ph.D student

I am looking for any information on word counts in other languages in relation to English.  For example, on the average, how many words are there in French for 100 words in English communicating the same meaning? I am interested in any reference materials concerning any language.
