This contribution aims at the dissemination of a similarity-based generalization of fuzzy orderings, however, not from a purely theoretical perspective, but from the viewpoint of possible practical applications. After a short motivation of similarity-based fuzzy orderings, we consider four case studies with the aim to illustrate the application potential of fuzzy orderings— flexible query systems, ordering-based modifiers, orderings of fuzzy sets, and interpretability of linguistic variables.
