This paper introduces strict fuzzy orderings in the framework of similarity-based fuzzy orderings, i.e. where a context of similarity/ indistinguishability is given by means of a fuzzy equivalence relation. We consider how to construct strict fuzzy orderings from partial fuzzy orderings and vice versa. The appropriateness of the concepts introduced in this paper is underlined by theoretical results and examples. We observe that the strongest results are achieved if the underlying triangular norm induces an involutive residual negation.
