|Good morning Marfey. NO.
Defer has a couple of different meanings.
1) To put off doing something until a later time.
2)To accept that a more knowledgeable person is your superior. In deference to "Alan's better understanding of English grammar," I am acknowledging that he knows far more than me about the subject.
To describe is to " give a mental picture " of something.
" He is a tall man with a limp, and he is wearing a blue raincoat."
