SVO/SOV/VSO/ETC

It could be because I have a headache, but for whatever reason, I'm having a hard time figuring out what the word order for a conlang I'm working on would be. English is Subject-verb-object for instance.

Here's some examples I've worked out (subject to change):

"Stranger: Hello. Calling mine is (name). Calling your, is what?
As opposed to "Hello, stranger. My calling is (Name). What is your calling?"

..

"Brother mine: ¿Thought your, is what? ¿Her tell, should we?"
As opposed to:
"What do you think, brother? Should we tell her?"
("Her" is only ever possessive in this language, though.)

Anyway, I await people's thoughts. In the mean time, gonna go take a nap.

EDIT: I think, now, I'm going to aim for OVS. (Object-verb-subject.) So instead of "She loves him," it'd be "Him she loves."
