Short summary
Feldspars are the most abundant minerals in the Earth's crust. Their structural behaviour is complicated because order/disorder reactions, phase transitions, and unmixing processes interact. Liu et al. (2018) claim that the water content in the nominally dry feldspars has a profound influence on the transformation behaviour. Their arguments, however, are not sound. We point to a number of errors and omissions.
