We study the relationship between two sets S and S of Coxeter generators of a finitely generated Coxeter group W by proving a series of theorems that identify common features of S and S. We describe an algorithm for constructing from any set of Coxeter generators S of W a set of Coxeter generators R of maximum rank for W.

A subset C of S is called complete if any two elements of C generate a finite group. We prove that if S and S have maximum rank, then there is a bijection between the complete subsets of S and the complete subsets of S so that corresponding subsets generate isomorphic Coxeter systems. In particular, the Coxeter matrices of (W,S) and (W,S) have the same multiset of entries.
