It wasn't written in the article? :-\

Edit:
It has many causes f. e.
Quote
Of 954 languages coded for this in WALS, 584 of them have question particles.
The word order switching that we do in English only happens in 1.4% of the languages. That’s 13
languages total and most of them come from Europe: German, Czech, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian,
Frisian, English, Danish, and Spanish.

But Dutch, German, and Norwegian—like English—prefer having special subject
pronouns that are normally/obligatorily present. But this is only done by 82 of the 711 languages
coded in WALS.
