Though-movement is movement which looks like topicalization but is not, because the preposed phrase is separated from the rest of the sentence by the adverb though.
Though-movement derives (i)b from (i)a.
(i) a Though I think she is pretty, I don't like her. b Pretty though I think she is, I don't like her.
Though-movement is easy to confuse with tough-movement.
