In this paper, relations among the membership values of gener-
alized fuzzy languages such as intuitionistic fuzzy language, interval-valued
fuzzy language and vague language are studied. It will aid in studying the
properties of one language when the properties of another are known.
Further, existence of a minimized nite automaton with vague ( final) states
for any vague regular language recognized by a nite automaton with vague
( final) states is shown in this paper. Finally, an ecient algorithm is given
for minimizing the nite automaton with vague ( final) states. Similarly, it can
be shown for intuitionistic fuzzy regular language. These may contribute to a
better understanding of the role of nite automaton with vague ( final) states
or the nite automaton with intuitionistic fuzzy ( final) states while studying
lexical analysis, decision making etc.
