Summary: In this paper, we study the Ferrers property of relations in the context of fuzzy preference modelling. A logical approach leads us to the notion of \(T\)-Ferrers relations, while a relational approach brings us to \(T\)-biorders. We characterize the t-norms for which both notions coincide. We also describe the kind of completeness exhibited by reflexive \(T\)-Ferrers relations or reflexive \(T\)-biorders. Finally, we investigate the relationship between the \(T\)-Ferrers properties of a reflexive fuzzy relation \(R\) and the corresponding strict preference relation \(P\), and the relationship between \(R\) and \(P\) being \(T\)-biorders.
