The paper draws on the theory of mass assignment to refine the underlying semantics of intuitionistic fuzzy sets. Inconsistency can arise from several sources and it is dealt with in different ways. All the representations of inconsistency and contradiction in this paper arise from considering restricting and positive evidence lattices. In particular this paper formally addresses the operators, intersection and conjunction in detail. Because union and disjunction are required to compute the values for intersection and conjunction these are also covered as part of the analysis.
