Linguistic LingField(s):  Typology

Query:   Hi Linguists,
I'm working on a Philippine auxiliary language that has bucketloads of
suppleted forms. In other words, I'm dealing with words where the
morphology is not explicit, as in English 'go' -> 'went' and Russian.

I would like to know if you can tell me of other languages that have a high
degree of this kind of implicit morphology. And is there a way of
quantifying suppletion in a language?

Many thanks,
