Q. word-order grammar.

Ordinary word order in Quenya is quite similar to English:

Some of these rules were described by Tolkien. He stated that “the classical and normal order was expressed subject, verb, object” (PE17/72) and “Quenya preferred the (older) order in which adjectival stems preceded” (PM/346). Most of these discussions are part of descriptions to exceptions of these rules, however. @@@
