Lugar de edición:Venezia

A Grammar of Italian Sign Language (LIS) is a comprehensive presentation of the grammatical properties of LIS. It has been conceived as a tool for students, teachers, interpreters, the Deaf community, researchers, linguists and whoever is interested in the study of LIS. It is one output of the Horizon 2020 SIGN-HUB project.


It is composed of six Parts:

- Part 1 devoted to the social and historical background in which the language has developed, and

- five Parts covering the main properties of Phonology, Lexicon, Morphology, Syntax and Pragmatics.


Thanks to the electronic format of the grammar, text and videos are highly interconnected and are designed to fit the description of a visual language.
