The main purpose of this paper is to introduce a concept of L-fuzzifying topological vector spaces (here L is a completely distributive lattice) and study some of their basic properties. Also, a characterization of such spaces in terms of the corresponding L-fuzzifying neighborhood structure of the zero element is given. Finally, the conclusion that the category of L-fuzzifying topological vector spaces is topological over the category of vector spaces is proved.
