tide

Definitions of tide
prep. - Time; period; season. 2
prep. - The alternate rising and falling of the waters of the ocean, and of bays, rivers, etc., connected therewith. The tide ebbs and flows twice in each lunar day, or the space of a little more than twenty-four hours. It is occasioned by the attraction of the sun and moon (the influence of the latter being three times that of the former), acting unequally on the waters in different parts of the earth, thus disturbing their equilibrium. A high tide upon one side of the earth is accompanied by a high tide upon the opposite side. Hence, when the sun and moon are in conjunction or opposition, as at new moon and full moon, their action is such as to produce a greater than the usual tide, called the spring tide, as represented in the cut. When the moon is in the first or third quarter, the sun's attraction in part counteracts the effect of the moon's attraction, thus producing under the moon a smaller tide than usual, called the neap tide. 2
prep. - A stream; current; flood; as, a tide of blood. 2
prep. - Tendency or direction of causes, influences, or events; course; current. 2
prep. - Violent confluence. 2
prep. - The period of twelve hours. 2
v. t. - To cause to float with the tide; to drive or carry with the tide or stream. 2
n. - To betide; to happen. 2
n. - To pour a tide or flood. 2
n. - To work into or out of a river or harbor by drifting with the tide and anchoring when it becomes adverse. 2
