A novel Italian Sign Language MultiWordNet (LMWN), which integrates the MultiWordNet (MWN) lexical database with the Italian Sign Language (LIS), is presented in this paper. The approach relies on LIS lexical resources which support and help to search for Italian lemmas in the database and display corresponding LIS signs. The lexical frequency analysis of the lexicon and some newly created signs approved by expert LIS signers are also discussed. The larger MWN database helps to enrich the variety and comprehensiveness of the lexicon. We also describe the approach which links the Italian lemmas and LIS signs to extract and display bilingual information from the collected lexicon and the semantic relationships of LIS Signs with MWN. The users can view the meanings of almost one fourth of the lemmas of MWN in LIS.
