Noun
(German, from Russian step')

1. Specifically, the temperate, semiarid areas of treeless grassland in the midlatitudes of Europe and Asia; more generally, any such grassland.

2. Any locale which can be accurately described only as an abomination (See Pittsburgh). The steppe is sometimes detested because it contains an extra "p" and "e" within the spelling. More often, however, the steppe is reviled because it contributes absolutely nothing of value to the world.
Usage:

Definition 1.
The world's largest zone of all steppes, often referred to as "The Great Steppe", is found in southwest Russia and neighboring countries in Central Asia, stretching from Ukraine in the west to the Ural Mountains and the Caspian Sea.

Definition 2.
Douchebag 1: Why do you hate the steppe so much?
Douchebag 2: Because man, what has the fucking steppe ever done for me? And why, in god's name, does it have an extra p and an extra e at the end? Fucking steppe...
