Star Wars - Yoda

I was thinking, perhaps Yoda's odd speech patterns *aren't* the result
of his first language, but are a survival of an archaic form of the
human language?  Yoda was 900 years old, English of 900 years ago was
quite different.  I just thought of that when I thought of the line
"What know you of ready?", just like archaic English's inversion rule.
