Agent-Based Models of Strategies for the Emergence and Evolution of Grammatical Agreement

Comparison of inventory size.

This graph compares the main strategies presented here with respect to the size of the marker inventory. It shows that meaningful markers require a larger marker inventory (because they have semantic constrains). However, using a coercion strategy, agents manage to function with a similar inventory size for meaningful markers as for formal markers, thus significantly reducing effort for learning and memory.
