To integrate computing with words (CW) (L.A. Zadeh, 1996) and ordinary computation, an object oriented fusion-diffusion mechanism is developed and proposed with respect to an object oriented system analysis and design framework. The object type fusion is used to glue a set of linguistically defined object types to create a new object type that transforms crisp information into linguistic and primitive format. The object type diffusion is used to unglue a linguistic object type, given as the opposite of the fusion mechanism. It transforms a linguistic format of the input and results in a constituent crisp and primitive format. The bra-ket (R.P. Feynann et al., 1965) and left-right parenthesis notation are introduced to formulate the mechanisms. It is shown that analyzing and designing the human user interface of a sophisticated information system is aided by this method. Accordingly, we give an outline of our new analysis and design method influenced by the fusion-diffusion mechanism. A multimedia system, data warehouse, and teleportation system are briefly examined as examples
