A: Row is the action of moving a boat with a paddle. Because of that, if you are bringing someone off shore, you would be using a paddle to row them off, since you are in a boat. They take that verb and then use it. So instead of "should I bring you off shore from moving this boat?", they will say "should I row you off shore?".

Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com "row" and "argument".
A: A row is always a fight. An argument is often a fight, but you can also talk about "making an argument" or "presenting an argument", to mean making a logical case for or against something.

These two are identical, except that "having an argument" sounds more formal than "having a row":

"My neighbours are having a row again."
"My neighbours are having an argument again."

But you can also say:

"My lawyer made an argument in my favour." (that is, "my lawyer presented a case that supported me.")
"If you want to convince people, use logical arguments, not just emotion."

Synonyms of "Row" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre to row e to paddle ?
A: Without looking in the dictionary (because I think it would confuse me) the following are the usages that pop into my head.

Row - using oars to move a small boat. There’s a children’s song that starts “row, row, row your boat gently down the stream...” But it can be in the ocean or a lake too.

Paddling - the hand movements of a surfer while laying on their surfboard to move forward
Also used to describe movement of a duck’s feet while it is “swimming”
Paddle boards - (if you can’t open link, search Paddling With a Shark)
Paddle boat Just watch a few seconds
Paddle is used when talking about kayaks also

Sometimes they seem to mean the same thing, but our custom is to use a specific word according to the context. Or MAYBE rowing is horizontal and paddling is vertical. ???

What’s the difference between an oar and a paddle (noun)? Look at google images. They often look the same.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre to row e to scull ?
A: Only serious rowers/ crew aficionados would use the verb scull. Most Americans probably don't have that word in their vocabulary since it's very sport-specific. Row is very common.

And then in UK English, a row is also an argument.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre have a massive row e quarrel ?
A: They both mean roughly the same thing.
"To have a row" is the British way of saying to argue/quarrel.
"Row" however, specifically means to argue noisily.

Q: Qual é a diferença entre on a row e in a row ?
A: On a row would me that they are standing directly on top of a row. In a row means you are standing in the middle of it. In a row is like saying "in line/straight".
Q: Qual é a diferença entre row e line e queue ?
A: Queue and line are essentially the same. Meaning a group of people in a straight "line" behind one another. But queue is British and line is American. A row, in my opinion represents a group of people in a straight "line" beside one another
