If your system supports multiple locales, the setting of the environment variables LANG, LC_ALL, LC_COLLATE, LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES, LC_MONETARY, LC_NUMERIC, LC_TIME, and possibly others starting with LC_ determine how utilities will process sorting, character classification, messaging, money, dates and times, and other locale specific data.

If you are trying to process English text while using a locale designed to process left to right text, you are likely to see symptoms similar to what you have described. What output do you get from the command?:

Not even blindly, i.e. disregarding what appears on screen? Define an alias that you can type blindly.
