Topicalization in Berber: a typological perspective


This article addresses the phenomenon of topicalization from a typological perspective, both at the level of the Berber phylum and at the cross-linguistic level. It aims at providing Berber's principal linguistic properties and mechanisms of topicalization in comparison with cross-linguistic accounts so as to better understand the connection between syntax and information structure, which in Berber is subject to variation and to a complex interplay with prosody.
