This paper aims at investigating the main linguistic properties associated with cardinal numerals in LIS (Italian sign language). Considering this issue from several perspectives (phonology, prosody, semantics and syntax), we discuss some relevant corpus and elicited data with the purpose of shedding light on the distribution of cardinals in LIS. We also explain what triggers the emergence of different word/sign orders in the noun phrase. Non-manual markers are crucial in detecting two particular subcases.

Abstract

This paper aims at investigating the main linguistic properties associated with cardinal numerals in LIS (Italian sign language). Considering this issue from several perspectives (phonology, prosody, semantics and syntax), we discuss some relevant corpus and elicited data with the purpose of shedding light on the distribution of cardinals in LIS. We also explain what triggers the emergence of different word/sign orders in the noun phrase. Non-manual markers are crucial in detecting two particular subcases.
