The Choctaw language possesses a large number
of suppletive verb-stem alternations marking subject or object number and related categories. There are also many irregular derivational alternations which border on suppletion but which involve a common etymological root. Full presentation of these alternations touches on almost all aspects of Choctaw derivational verbal morphology, and also leads to several internal reconstructions of pre-Choctaw lexical and phonological structure bearing on comparative Muskogean linguistics.
