Word order in Maltcέgj is quite rigid (VSO, head-initial) and fairly straight-forward. Word order does not change depending on factors like interrogative mood, and mood and tense are indicated with particles.
CPs follow the order:
e.g. And did the angry woman with the hat steal your books yesterday?
e1 cʌþ dyd2 fram3 glam vʌdj ɛm áklar ok6 lanad7 ak kalg u mέlɛm a10?
(and ? did steal woman anger-upon hat-with yesterday book of you at)
NP/AP/PPs for 6-10 follow the order:
e.g. Yes, she stole seven of my thick red books.
gam, dyd fram pɛl klag2 nost ok3 djóde3 dan4 u jǫg5 a6
(yes, did steal she book thickness-with red seven of me at.)
