The chapter considers the acquisition of number agreement in English, revealing asymmetries in production and comprehension. The possibility is explored that agreement is a post-syntactic phenomenon such that agreement on the target is inaccessible to interpretation. The consequences are explored for a radically different agreement paradigm, namely Xhosa.
