In this paper we explore the possibility of introducing the equality symbol in the languages of Fuzzy Description Logics (FDLs) interpreted as a similarity relation. The goal is twofold: dealing with attribute-value representations at the domain objects level, and integrating the treatment of similarities inside the description languages and their corresponding knowledge bases.
