I wrote "Nineth". Well done, English...

Well, I wrote 'eight'. Damn you, additional 'h'.

how do we know when it refers to rows or queues? https://glosbe.com/eo/en/vico

What does this sentence mean? What are situations this would be used in?

When you discuss when it is your turn to enter an office or where ever you had to queue up.

For my understanding row and queue have nearly the same meaning, except that a queue waits for something and a row can just be there.

The second "la" threw me in this sentence. "the turns are the ours"?

How would you say "taking turns", as in going back and forth in a boardgame
