This paper presents a symbolic model for handling nuanced information expressed in the affirmative form ”x is mα A”. In this model, nuanced information are represented in a qualitative way within a symbolic context. For that purpose, vague terms and linguistic modifiers that operate on them are defined. The model presented is based on a symbolic M-valued predicate logic and provides a new deduction rule generalizing the classical Modus Ponens Rule.
