    just

    "Try his home number. He might just be in."
    "Jackson is leaving the Detroit Red Wings and just could be transferred to the Boston Bruins."

    Does using "just" make the possibility of an action slighter? (Without "just" the chances are, say, 20% whereas with "just" the chances are 10%).

    Re: just

    What part of a sentence is "just"? Is it an adverb or something?
    And is there another word that works like just?
