Does anyone know of a language where metrical constraints can determine
word choice?

Imagine if you had to choose the right synonym depending on which syllable
had to be accented to fit.  There would be some words that could syncopate
to fit, but mostly you'd need suppletion.  In some cases you could use
small filler syllables, though.

Anybody got a language like that? :)
