For an isolating language that isn't Sino-Tibetan, I
think Yoruba is a good example, though I know next to
nothing of that language.

English. Other than that, I don't know. Are you
looking for monosyllablic non-tonal isolangs?

As far as I know, pretty much anything goes. Most
isolangs I know prefer SVO, since the V keeps the S
and O apart without requiring particles. That's the
only thing I can think of.

How strange! I was working on a conlang called Gi-nin
for a while, until it 'evolved' into my current one,
Nm. Both were isolating, SOV and, so some degree, tonal!
