Hedge detection involves identifying vague or ambiguous and unsupported claims in text. Hedges could be used to mislead the audience or may simply reflect bad writing skills or the lack of supporting arguments to the author's claims.
Research in hedge detection is considered in its infancy. With early works by Friedman et al in 1994 and Light et al in 2004.
