Usage examples for diminishes
We know that the agitation of the waves, even during storms, diminishes at a rapid rate, so as to become very insignificant at the depth of a few fathoms, and is quite imperceptible at the depth of about sixteen fathoms; but when large bodies of water are transferred by a current from one part of the ocean to another, they are known to maintain at great depths such a velocity as must enable them to remove the finer, and sometimes even the coarser, materials of the rocks over which they flow. – The Student's Elements of Geology by Sir Charles Lyell
This clause neither augments nor diminishes the expressly designated powers. – Monopolies and the People by D. C. Cloud
