The present study aims to expand the investigation on the communication of certainty and uncertainty in sign languages, focusing on dimensions already explored for verbal languages. In order to study the linguistic expressions through which Italian Sign Language (LIS) signers perform these specific communicative functions in spontaneous interactions, a corpus of conversational exchanges has been collected and analyzed. In the present paper the more relevant linguistic forms identified in the corpus to express certainty and uncertainty, with their functions and characteristics, are described.
