    Fuzzy semantic model (FSM) is a data model that uses basic concepts of semantic modeling and supports handling fuzziness, uncertainty and imprecision of real-world at the attribute, entity and class levels. The paper presents the principles and constructs of the FSM. It proposes ways to de¯ne the membership functions within all the constructs of the FSM. In addition, it provides a proposal for specifying FSM schema and introduce a query language adapted to FSM-based databases
