Fuzzy set approach has been applied in the database and information retrieval areas for nearly 30 years. Here we give consideration to aspects of these areas that seem to afford the greatest potential for further development. Imprecise information can be stored in traditional database using fuzzy linguistic terms (e.g. young, big) that are used frequently in daily life. Although these words are ambiguous, community agreement can be reached as to their meaning. The paper shows a mechanism to implement fuzzy information in a Traditional Database.
