AbstractThis article addresses the phenomenon of topicalization from a typological perspective, both at the level of the Berber phylum and at the crosslinguistic 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.
