Summary: Let \(G\) be a semilinearly ordered group with a positive cone \(P\). Denote by \(n(G)\) the greatest convex directed normal subgroup of \(G\), by \(o(G)\) the greatest convex right-ordered subgroup of \(G\), and by \(r(G)\) a set of all elements \(x\) of \(G\) such that \(x\) and \(x^{-1}\) are comparable with any element of \(P^\pm\) (the collection of all group elements comparable with an identity element). Previously, it was proved that \(r(G)\) is a convex right-ordered subgroup of \(G\), and \(n(G)\subset r(G)\subset o(G)\). Here, we establish a new property of \(r(G)\) and show that the inequalities in the given system of inclusions are, generally, strict.
