This paper presents a probabilistic model for linguistic multi-expert decision making (MEDM), which is able to deal with vague concepts in linguistic aggregation and decision-makers’ preference information in choice function. In linguistic aggregation phase, the vagueness of each linguistic judgement is captured by a possibility distribution on a set of linguistic labels. A confidence parameter is also incorporated into the basic model to model experts’ confidence degree. The basic idea of this…

TLDR
The main advantage of this proposed model is its capability to deal with complex linguistic evaluations and partial semantic overlapping among neighboring linguistic labels.

TLDR
By introducing a new linguistic-labels aggregation operation, a procedure for handling an autocratic group decision-making process under linguistic assessments is presented and results in two consequent outcomes: a group-based recommendation, and a score for each expert, reflecting the expert's contribution towards the group recommendation.

TLDR
A multiexpert decision-making method with linguistic assessments, making use of the notion of random preferences and a so-called satisfactory principle, that says that it is perfectly satisfactory to select an alternative as the best if its performance is as at least "good" as all the others under the same evaluation scheme.

A linguistic modeling of consensus in group decision making based on OWA operators

TLDR
A "soft" consensus degree referred to a fuzzy majority of the experts is proposed based on the concept of linguistic quantifier within fuzzy set theory by ordered weighted average (OWA) operators.

A 2-tuple fuzzy linguistic representation model for computing with words

TLDR
This paper develops a computational technique for computing with words without any loss of information in the 2-tuple linguistic model and extends different classical aggregation operators to deal with this model.

Appropriateness measures: an uncertainty model for vague concepts

TLDR
It is proposed that uncertainty in the decision making process required for selecting assertible vague descriptions of an object is quantified by a measure corresponding to an agent’s subjective belief that a vague concept label can be appropriately used to describe a particular object.
