  • verb
  • • To trap a ship (or ship and crew) in water too shallow to move, due to the smaller tidal range occurring in a period of neap tides.
  • • To ooze, to sink, to subside, to tail
  • adjective
  • • (of a tide) low; lowest; the ebb or lowest point of a tide.
  • • Designating a tide which occurs just after the first and third quarters of the moon, when there is the least difference between high tide and low tide.
