Abstract. The aim of this study is to determine the linguistic and socio-cultural features of hedging in the text of an English-language scientific article on economic topics. The paper provides a definitional analysis of the notion "hedging", defines its functions in a scientific text from the position of rhetorical potential and perception of a text by recipients, and notes the pragmatic potential of hedging as an argumentation tool within the framework of scientific discourse. The scientific novelty of the study lies in a comprehensive analysis of hedging markers within the framework of economic articles, both in terms of linguistic and socio-cultural characteristics. As a result, it has been proved that hedging markers are of key importance in the text of a scientific article on economic topics, being an effective method of argumentation, interaction with a reader and obscuration of epistemic responsibility by the author.
