A Grammar of Italian Sign Language (LIS) is a comprehensive presentation of the grammatical properties 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.
