plunging (part of speech: adjective)
- Under the shallow water at the mouth of the pond the marks of their feet on the mud may be traced: they run swiftly, and depend upon that speed and the skilful tricks they practise in diving- turning back and dodging under water like a hare in the fields- to escape from pursuit, rather than on their wings. - "Wild Life in a Southern County", Richard Jefferies.
- You'll have to do the diving, because you know about where the thing is, and I don't. - "The Flying Stingaree", Harold Leland Goodwin.
- " Course I do," said Diadema, diving to the bottom of the dish- pan. - "The Village Watch-Tower", (AKA Kate Douglas Riggs) Kate Douglas Wiggin.
