The paper explores the performance of two selecteddistance measures of fuzzy numbers (the Bhattacharyya distanceand the dissemblance index) and two different fuzzy similaritymeasures in the context of linguistic approximation. Symmetricaltriangular fuzzy numbers are considered as the approximatedentities. A numerical experiment is employed to map the behaviorof the four distance/similarity measures under uniform linguisticscales used for the linguistic approximation. We identify aclear difference of the performance of the selected methodswhen the approximation of low-uncertain fuzzy numbers areapproximated. One of the selected fuzzy similarity measurestends to emphasize extreme evaluations and disregard intermediatelinguistic values. For highly uncertain fuzzy numbers themethods seem to be close to equivalent in terms of the linguisticapproximation.
