In search of a term

What is the opposite of "intensive?" Often there is an intensive particle in
a given language, making its antecedent stronger. I'm actually using this in
my positive compartitive issue, making it broad enough to cover any
antecdent be it verb noun adverb adjective etc.

I'd like to go to a 4 level intensive and what ever the opposite is and your
help for terminology would be gratefully appreciated.
