Abstract: Let $ X$ be a compact smooth manifold, $ \dim X = n$. Let $ \Lambda $ be a fixed Lagrangian submanifold of $ {T^\ast}X$. The space of Lagrangian distributions $ {I^k}(X,\Lambda )$ is contained in $ {L^2}(X)$ if $ k < - n/4$. When $ k = n/4$, $ {I^{ - n/4}}(X,\Lambda )$ just misses $ {L^2}(X)$. A new inner product $ {\langle u,v\rangle _R}$ is defined on $ {I^{ - n/4}}(X,\Lambda )/{I^{ - n/4 - 1}}(X,\Lambda )$ in terms of symbols. This inner product contains "$ {L^2}$ information" in the following sense: Slight regularizations of the Lagrangian distributions are taken, putting them in $ {L^2}(X)$. The asymptotic behavior of the $ {L^2}$ inner product is examined as the regularizations approach the identity. Three different regularization schemes are presented and, in each case, $ {\langle u,v\rangle _R}$ is found to regulate the growth of the ordinary $ {L^2}$ inner product.
