Mnemonic Device:

  • Can’t remember how many s’s there are in the word “dessert”? Well, just think, when you eat dessert you always want “one more.”
  • Two sugars, 2 s’s

Explanation: to spell the word DESSERT


  • Remembering the difference in spelling dessert and desert. One usually wants seconds of dessert, so there are 2 s’s. One usually wants less desert so there is only one s.
  • You always want more dessert, so add an extra s to desert to get dessert.
