The absence of a light Higgs boson is often considered the main feature of dynamical Electroweak Symmetry Breaking (EWSB). However it is conceivable, and perhaps preferable, to consider the situation where a new strong interaction underlies EWSB and yet there exists a light scalar resonance with couplings qualitatively similar to those of the Standard Model Higgs. One can
think of two such examples, in one case the light scalar is a pseudoGoldstone composite Higgs while in the other it is a naturally light dilaton. I will show that, in both cases, the deviations from the Standard Model are tightly constrained by the relevant nonlinearly realized approximate symmetries. I will discuss the relevant observables to distinguish them.
