Spanish-related question ((q)SVO ?)

for Lost Languages, you have heard correctly that I am bringing to light
Orinoco English, which seems to have simplified what Spanish loans it
has...but there's something I'm unsure of...

 Orinoco English seems to *always* (without fail: there are no exceptions at
all) put the questioning-word at the start of a sentance.

 ie "Que wot be thee."
 ("what are you?" loose translation - please take no offense...that example
was atop my notes today).

 so...would that make Orinoco English a qSVO language?  *curious*
