Almost correct :)

"ls -1" respects the locale sort order, and it is not wanted here. Try, 

touch q r s t u v w x y z Q R S T U V W X Y Z
LC_ALL=et_EE.UTF-8 ls -1

Even for en_US, "ls -1" respects the locale-defined sort order, which is 
case-insensitive. So, in this situation, the correct command for finding 
out the lexical order is:

LC_ALL=C ls -1
