Lexical Imprecision in Fuzzy Constraint Networks,
*Proc. 10th Natl. Conf. on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-92)*,
San Jose, July 1992, 616-621.

We define fuzzy constraint networks and prove a theorem
about their relationship to fuzzy logic.
Then we introduce Khayyam,
a fuzzy constraint-based programming language in which any
sentence in the first-order fuzzy
predicate calculus is a well-formed constraint
statement.
Finally, using Khayyam to address an equipment selection application,
we illustrate the expressive power of fuzzy constraint-based languages.
