In recent times, to improve the interpretability and accuracy of computing with words processes, a rich linguistic representation model has been developed and referred to as Extended Comparative Linguistic Expressions with Symbolic Translation (ELICIT). This model extends the definition of the comparative linguistic expressions into a continuous domain due to the use of the symbolic translation concept related to the 2-tuple linguistic model. The aggregation of ELICIT information via a suitable rule that reflects the underlying interrelation among the aggregated information in output is the key tool to design decision-making algorithm for solving multi-attribute decision-making problems under linguistic information. In this study, we introduce three aggregation operators for aggregating ELICIT information in aim of capturing three different types of interrelationship patterns among inputs, which we refer to as ELICIT Bonferroni mean, ELICIT extended Bonferroni mean and ELICIT partitioned Bonferroni mean. Further, the key aggregation properties of these proposed operators are investigated with the proposal of weighted forms. Based on the proposed aggregation operators, an approach for solving multi-attribute decision-making problems, in which attributes are interrelated is developed. Finally, a didactic example is presented to illustrate the working of the proposal and demonstrate its feasibility.
