Talk:desert

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

the first DESERT is the one the pronunciation of which I would especially like. I have always heard it pronounced like DESSERT but the accent on the IPA is on the first syllable.

dee-ZERT(s) is what you deserve. DEZZ-ert is dry, arid land. There is also dee-ZERT that means to abandon. —Stephen (Talk) 02:20, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Definition order[edit]

The first definition presented appears to be the least common. Not sure what policy is here, but shouldn't the 'deserve/desert' definition be last based on common usage? Also, can a more concise TOC be used, just showing major headings? Not sure what options there are. LaTeeDa (talk) 14:29, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
