Bipolar linguistic summaries of data are assumed to be an extension of the ‘classical’ linguistic summarization, a data mining technique revealing complex patterns present in data in a human consistent form. The extension proposal is based on the possibilistic interpretation of the ‘and possibly’ operator and introduced notion of context, which results in the introduction of the new ‘contextual and possibly’ operator. As the end user is expecting the most relevant summaries, ways of determining the quality of summary propositions (quality measures) needs to be developed. Here we focus on specific insights into the quality measures of proposed bipolar linguistic summaries of data and present some basic examples of their correctness and necessity of introduction.
