"Can you give me an easy way for remembering how to spell 'desert' versus 'dessert'?
You've come to the right place. A lot of people get mixed up when spelling these words, but I've got a great mnemonic for remembering the difference.
- desert (n.) [pronounced DEZ-ert] - a dry place.
- dessert (n.) [pronounced deh-ZERT] - a yummy treat eaten after a meal.
- If you have one dessert, you'll want seconds. Remember that "dessert" is the one with two s's.
- The two s's in dessert stand for "sweet stuff."
