The purpose of this study is to provide a formal description of polar interrogatives clauses in LSC and, moreover, propose a syntactic analysis that can take account for any form this kind of structure can acquire. This  study  includes  an  overview  of  what  is  known  so  far about polar  interrogatives in  both  oral  and  sign  language  modalities,  paying  especial attention to those linguistic devices that are used to mark this sentence type. LSC is not out of  ordinary:  as  a SL,  nonmanual  marking  is  required  in  order  to  perform  the  sentence.
