We consider linguistic data(base) summaries in the sense of Yager [Information Sciences 28 (1982) 69-86], exemplified by "most employees are young and well paid" (with some degree of truth added), for a personnel database, as an intuitive, human consistent and natural language based knowledge discovery tool. We present first an extension of the classic Yager's approach to involve more sophisticated criteria of goodness, search methods, etc. We advocate the use of the concept of a protoform… CONTINUE READING
