### Abstract

Swamy studied the natural "metric" |x-y| on Abelian lattice-ordered groups G, and he proved that the stable isometries which preserve this metric have to be automorphisms of G. Holland proved that the only intrinsic metrics on lattice-ordered groups, i.e., invariant and symmetric metrics, are the multiples n|x -y| for some integer n. We show that if f is an arbitrary surjection from an Abelian lattice-ordered group G_{1} onto an Archimedean Abelian lattice-ordered group G_{2} such that f(0)]0 and, for some non-zero intrinsic metrics D and d, D(f(x),f(y)) depends functionally on d(x,y), then f is a homomorphism of G_{1} onto G_{2}.
