Grammatical agreement means that two linguistic units share certain syntactic or semantic features such as gender, number or person. Agreement has a variety of grammatical functions. One of them, called internal agreement, is to signal which words
are grouped together as part of the same phrase. This chapter explores how a population might self-organize such
an agreement system. We argue that this happens when speakers attempt to reduce processing effort and avoid ambiguities.
