Reinterpreting Interpretability for Fuzzy Linguistic Descriptions of Data

We approach the problem of interpretability for fuzzy linguistic descriptions of data from a natural language generation perspective. For this, first we review the current state of linguistic descriptions of data and their use contexts as a standalone tool and as part of a natural language generation system. Then, we discuss the standard approach to interpretability for linguistic descriptions and introduce our complementary proposal, which describes the elements from linguistic descriptions of data that can influence and improve the interpretability of automatically generated texts (such as fuzzy properties, quantifiers, and truth degrees), when linguistic descriptions are used to determine relevant content within a text generation system.
