An inductive characterization is given of the subsets of a group that extend to the positive cone of a right order on the group. This characterization is used to relate validity of equations in lattice-ordered groups (l-groups) to subsets of free groups that extend to the positive cone of a right order. As a consequence, new proofs are obtained of the decidability of the word problem for free l-groups and generation of the variety of l-groups by the l-group of automorphisms of the real line. An inductive characterization is also given of the subsets of a group that extend to the positive cone of an order on the group. In this case, the characterization is used to relate validity of equations in varieties of representable l-groups to subsets of relatively free groups that extend to the positive cone of an order.
