    If used to describe a process, could it be tiring or exhausting?

    Yo creo se debe de referir al término desgastante respecto al estado de ánimo: "Esta situación litigiosa es desgastante para ambas partes", no al termino de desgaste empleado para describir físicamente el deterioro de algo material. No estoy seguro pero creo que en ambos casos se emplea wear out.

    weary

    e.g; ...habían decido no seguir las acciones militares desgastantes de los métodos foquistas...

    ...they had decided not to continue the weary military action of the foquista methods...
