Perhaps someone who speaks a non-Indo-European language on this list (such  
as Hebrew) can explain us if they think the words in a queer order, too?

"someone imagines that one could NOT think "a  sentence"
with the remarkable word order of German or Latin just as it stands"
"Rather, one first has to think it, and then one arranges the words in that 
queer order"
"(A French politician once wrote that it was a peculiarity of  the French 
language that in it words occur in the order in which one  thinks them.)"
