Desert (n/vi/vt) and Dessert (n)

In one of the first sessions of the first college course I ever took, at the College of Vermont’s Brattleboro campus, the teacher took plains to differentiate the words, and their usage, on these five worksheets on the homophones, to wit, desert (a noun and a verb, in the latter case used both intransitively and transitively) and dessert, which is only a noun.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
