The article presents several adaptive fuzzy hedge logics. These logics are designed to perform a specific kind of hedge detection. Given a premise set Γ that represents a series of communicated statements, the logics can check whether some predicate occurring in Γ may be interpreted as being (implicitly) hedged by technically, strictly speaking or loosely speaking, or simply non-hedged. The logics take into account both the logical constraints of the premise set as well as conceptual…

Hedges: A study in meaning criteria and the logic of fuzzy concepts

Any attempt to limit truth conditions for natural language sentences to true, false and "nonsense' will distort the natural language concepts by portraying them as having sharply defined rather than fuzzily defined boundaries.

Residuated fuzzy logics with an involutive negation

This paper investigates the residuated fuzzy logics arising from continuous t-norms without non-trivial zero divisors and extended with an involutive negation.

It is shown that this structure determines the proof theory as well as the semantics of the adaptive logics, and moreover that most properties of the logics can be proved by relying solely on the structure, viz. without invoking any specific properties ofThe logics themselves.

All members of a specific (large) set of adaptive logics are proved to have a number of properties that warrant their formal decency and their suitability with respect to understanding and explicating dynamic forms of reasoning.

This paper presents a meta-analysis of many-Valued Propositional Logic, focusing on the part of Lukasiewicz's Logic that deals with Complexity, Undecidability and Generalized Quantifiers and Modalities.

A Hedge for Gödel Fuzzy Logic

We add to Godel propositional fuzzy logic an unary connective originating in intuitionistic logic and having a natural meaning in fuzzy logic. We prove completeness with respect to a natural
