Desert / Dessert: Pengertian, Contoh Kalimat, dan Soal

Pengertian dan Penggunaan Desert dan Dessert

Desert dan dessert tampak serupa, namun sesungguhnya dua kata ini berbeda maknanya.

Desert sebagai noun (kata benda) berarti “an arid region with usually sparse vegetation. It is often covered by sand or rocks.” (area kering yang biasanya jarang tumbuh-tumbuhan, seringnya tertutup pasir atau batu-batuan). Kata ini dilafalkan dengan memberi stress (penekanan) pada second syllable (suku kata kedua).

Sebagai verb (kata kerja), desert berarti “to leave someone in a difficult situation” (meninggalkan seseorang saat berada pada situasi yang sulit) dengan stress pada first syllable.

Dessert merupakan noun yang bermakna “a usually sweet dish that is served at the end of a meal” (hindangan yang biasanya manis yang disajikan setelah makan).
