A technique for making linguistic decsions is presented. Fuzzy sets are assued to be an appropriate way of dealng with uncertainty, and it b therefore cncluded that decisions taken on the basis of such infomation must themselves be fuzzy. It b inappriate then to present the decision in numencal form; a statement in natural angug is much better. For brevity only a single-stage multlabute decsion problem is considered. Solutions to such problems are shown using ideas in linguisc approximation and truth qualiction. An extensive example illuminates the basic ideas and techniques.
