Quechua a 5%er

Less than five percent of the world’s languages belong to one of the three remaining possible types: VOS, OVS and OSV. In other words, the subject precedes the object in more than 95 percent of all languages. (Linguistics for Students of Asian and African Languages chapter 4 page 10)

But I remember hearing about a language, I thought it was Quechua when I started, but maybe not, that was one of these languages.

The translator wrote SVO but the language was OVS. So “God loved the world so much” translated became “The world loved God so much.” This actually matched the people’s previous religioius beliefs. This, obviously, caused lots of problems until they figured out the root cause.
