[H.sup.P.sub.j] is the hesitant fuzzy linguistic term set [H.sup.P.sub.i] with probabilistic information in [mathematical expression not reproducible] induced by the jth largest [u.sub.i].
Example 1 Let a linguistic term set be S = {[s.sub.0],***, [s.sub.8]}.
According to the probabilistic weighting vector [P.sub.i] (i = 1, 2, 3, 4) of each hesitant fuzzy linguistic term set, we know the decision maker holds a pessimistic attitude towards this aggregation process.
Let S = {[s.sub.0], ..., [s.sub.g]} be a linguistic term set. A HFLTS, denoted by [H.sub.S], is an ordered finite subset of the consecutive linguistic terms of S.
Suppose that [mathematical expression not reproducible] are two HFLTSs on X = {[x.sub.1], [x.sub.2], ..., [x.sub.n]} defined on linguistic term set S and #[H.sub.1] and #[H.sub.2] are the numbers of HFLTSs [H.sub.1] and [H.sub.2], respectively Let L = max {#[H.sub.1], #[H.sub.2]}.
