Fuzzy XPath                  


We introduce our proposed extension to XPath, taking into account the following characteristics:

  • Fuzzy Subtree Matching: providing a ranked list of retrieved information items rather than the usual set oriented one.
  • Fuzzy Predicates: specifying flexible selection conditions.
  • Fuzzy Quantification: allowing the specification of linguistic quantifiers as aggregation operators.
