Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademic


In this paper we propose a new type of protoform-based linguistic summary – the gradual summary. This new type of summaries aims in capturing the change over some time span. Such summaries can be useful in many domains, for instance in economics, e.g., “prices of x are getting smaller”, in eldercare, e.g., “resident y is getting less active”, in managing production, e.g. “production is dropping” or “delays in deliveries are getting smaller”.keywordslinguistic summariesfuzzy logiccomputing with wordsprotoforms.
