La mitigación en el texto científico-médico

Silvia Ierardi, Daniele Stancampiano

Resumen

En esta contribución, proponemos avanzar algunas propuestas para un análisis pragmático de la mitigación en el texto médico-científico. Hemos intentado reajustar el modelo de mitigación Caffi (2001) al texto médico-científico escrito, analizando algunos artículos del British Medical Journal. Proponemos una clasificación de dos tipos de mitigadores, bushes y hedges, y algunas reflexiones sobre la relación entre los arbustos y la incertidumbre y entre las coberturas y la evidencia.
