Abstract

We propose a generalized inference method for constructing natural language communication. The method is used to obtain fuzzy quantifier Q’  when “QA are F is τ →Q’ (m’A) are mF is m’’τ” is inferred (Q, Q’: fuzzy quantifiers, A: fuzzy subject, m, m’, m’’: modifiers, F: fuzzy predicate, τ: truth qualifier). We show that Q’  is resolved step by step for a non-increasing type (few, …) and a non-decreasing type (most, …).
