### #86. Old paper by Jonathan Lawry

The PDF of an interesting paper popped up while looking for something else.

Jonathan Lawry (2004).

The topic is modelling linguistic labels. If you are familiar with the Bristol people, you know they tend to favour the random-set interpretation of fuzzy sets, instead of the fuzzy-logic approach. In this case, however, to model a linguistic constraint on a variable they match each individual to a set of appropriate labels, so the mathematical object is a random subset of a finite universe of labels.

Sections 1 and 2 make a long introduction which is informative and carefully written.
