  3. what about being deserted? i desert you? its all the way the word is used in a sentence and spelled of course. so there are 3 meanings to that word

    ReplyDelete

    1. But to desert someone is the same as desert anyway. Its the same meaning. A desert is deserted hence the name. :-)

    2. Good advice.It actually works! ;-)

  4. "Being deserted" essentially means being left alone/empty. The word comes from the same meaning as the large empty expanse we refer to as a desert. For "dessert," I learned to think "So Sweet."

  5. I learned "strawberry shortcake" to remember the spelling as a kid.

  6. They way we remembered it as kids was that "Dessert" is going to be the one you want more of, and hence it has one more "s" in it. No one wants more deserts lol.

  7. Two scoops in Dessert - De(SS)ert

  8. But I like the desert! Maybe I want more of it. ;)

  9. The only problem is when someone gets their "just deserts" - most people will give the double s when it's actually only one. I think of just deserts as be the reward (which can be sweet or sad), but had to learn this exception.

    1. I that sense, "deserts" is the noun form of the verb "deserve." If you get what you deserve, you've gotten just deserts.

  10. I have never seen "just deserts" used in a positive or "sweet" context classically outside of the area of philosophy - the term belays a message of comeuppance or payback to me, can anyone cite classic literary references?

    ReplyDelete
  11. "belays a message"?

  12. Desserts spelled backwards is stressed. Sometimes desserts can be comforting when you're stressed.

  14. Lots of people desert (leave) the desert. Few people desert desserts.

  15. How about eating a dessert in a deserted desert?! lol

    ReplyDelete
  16. Desert is the barren sandy land while Dessert is sweet stuff ☺

    ReplyDelete
  17. I learned as a kid that the SS in "desert" stood for Strawberry Shortcake and I never forgot it!

    1. "dessert" that is. Jeez.

  20. thanks I was really confussed

    ReplyDelete
  21. Where I live, the barren desert is pronounced "dez,zart" & the yummy dessert is pronounced "de,zurt," so that makes it seem ass backwards for us.

  22. Thanks for your useful posts! Sometimes it isn't easy to remember the differences between some similar words, so this blog can be very helpful. I think, in order to learn English more quickly and effectively, it's better to go for education abroad. You can order an admission essay for university here: www.professional-essay-writing.com.

  26. When one is in a desert, the opportunity for sweet breezes across the lips are scarce. And when your lips are about to eradicate a piece of pie or cake...you're a happy little chap indeed!

  35. you never want to be stuck in the desert more than once but you sure want that second serving of dessert.

  37. What drives me nuts, is that the rule on the sounds of vowels surrounding single and double consonants means that Dessert and Desert should be switched.

The two terms are usually very confusing but the author has clearly shown the difference between the two words and I salute him or her for doing a recommendable job.

I mean, I know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought you would have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you can fix if you weren't too busy searching for attention.
