La Lingua dei Ssegni Italiana: Grammatica, Lessico, e Variazione

This is a workshop mainly reporting results emerging from a grant (PRIN,
Italian Ministry of Education) devoted to analyze the dimensions of
(socio)linguistic variation in Italian Sign Language (LIS). These results will
be confronted with those emerging from similar research projects on sign
language corpora in other countries.

The languages of the workshop will be Italian, English and LIS.
Interpreting from Italian and English into LIS, and from LIS into Italian will be
provided. No English-Italian translation will be provided. Talks in English are
those with an English title.
