On Fuzzy Expressions in English
Zhang Guijun (Changchun University of Science and Technology,Changchun, 130022)
In this paper I attempt to explain my general understanding of fuzzy expressions in language, and I take English as an example. Fuzziness is one of the basic characteristics of language. It differs from generality, ambiguity and vagueness. There are many examples of fuzzy expressions in English. I supply examples of color words, some adjectives and linguistic hedges. Finally I attempt to explain fuzziness from pragmatic point of view.
