linguistic aggregation operator, linguistic symbolic computational model, intuitionistic linguistic label, group decision making, linguistic preference relation


In \cite{Cuong14, Phong14}, we first introduced the notion of intuitionistic linguistic labels. In this paper, we develop two symbolic computational models for intuitionistic linguistic labels (intuitionistic linguistic information). Various operators are proposed, their properties are also examined. Then, an application in group decision making using intuitionistic linguistic preference relations is discussed.
