Positioning for emphasis

English is, I believe, basically an SVO language, but this order can be
rearranged for emphasis or effect.

Are there any natlangs whose order, whatever it may be, can never be
rearranged?  If so, how do they indicate emphasis?

Likewise for any conlangs with which you may be familiar.
