I guess you have been throwing away too many files. You might be
missing (or perhaps it's corrupted) the file KeyEventTranslations.tr.
You can find it in the directory indicated by executing
$InstallationDirectory in Mathematica, subdirectory SystemFiles/
FrontEnd/TextResources/MacOS

If you have found it, there should be the following text in it:

@@resource KeyEventTranslations
(* Modifiers can be "Shift", "Control", "Command", "Option"
For Macintosh: "Command" = Command Key, "Option" = Option Key
For X11: "Command" = Mod1, "Option" = Mod2
For Windows: "Command" = Alt, "Option" = Alt
*)
