omg the Irish word order (Verb - Subject - Object) is also the same with the simple word order of Filipino! so it's kinda easier for us to understand the word order. just saying =)))

how about you? is the word order of your language VSO too? =)))

In my language word order is practically what you want it to be. My native language is Greek by the way. And it's usually VSO but it could easily be changed to OSV or SOV or any other combination.

When I first started learning Irish (years ago) it took me an embarrassingly long time to get used to the word order.

Nope, in Bulgarian it's SVO, just like in many other languages, but I got used to VSO already. :D

Turkish is SOV, but man isn't VSO so cool! It's like poetry to me!

Latin can usually be in any order, but it's most commonly is SOV, also.

VSO is the order I commonly see for Modern Standard Arabic, especially in the news, but with verb endings there is some redundancy and I will see SVO too.
