Dryer (2011): '..., SOV is much more common in small language families, suggesting that there was a time a few thousand years ago when SOV was by far the most common word order in the world.'

Atzo Newmeyer-ek aipatzen zuén Dryer, zein den akaso munduko tipologistarik zailduena, eta gaur fijatuko gara an ondorengo argudioa ti Dryer bera, non kontrajartzen dira datu estatikoak ("although the two orders are about equally common") eta bestelako datu kualitatiboak, nondik segituko dirén ondorio dinamikoak respektu evoluzioa e sintaxia an munduko hizkuntzak. Ikus daigun Dryer (2011):

The distribution of SOV versus SVO in the world is quite striking in that although the two orders are about equally common, SOV is much more common in small language families, suggesting that there was a time a few thousand years ago when SOV was by far the most common word order in the world. [Dryer, 2011]

Nahizta, jakina, ezin dugun jakin ziurtasunez nolákoa izan den munduko sintaxien historia zehatza eta osoa, evidentziak apuntatzen du ki SOV ordena nola oso-oso zabaldua an garai zaharrak.
