This paper claims that the availability of a particular strategy for expression of information structure should be explained in terms of properties internal to that same component of the grammar, by testing for cases of apparent complementarity in prosodic vs. syntactic strategies in a small corpus of Egyptian Arabic speech.

Keywords:   Egyptian Arabic, syntax‐phonology interface, information structure, focus, Thetics
