For example, I might say I'll ask you the questions and you respond; then we'll do it again vice versa, meaning that the second time around I would be the one responding to the questions.

Would male or inverse work, or is there already another common way to say this?

You can use inverse:

Mi faru la demandojn kaj vi respondu, kaj poste/refoje inverse.

Mi faros demandojn al kiuj vi respondu, kaj poste ni interŝanĝu (rolojn).

I wouldn't use male because that means "not so, on the contrary":

Mi ne faros demandojn, male! mi aŭskultos silente.

  • Do people ever use malmale?
