Recedes (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ebbs

'recedes' is the definition.
(ebbing is a kind of receding)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for ebbs that I've seen before include "Goes out like tide" , "Wanes" , "Subsides" , "flags" , "Flows back or recedes" .)

I've seen this clue in The Wall Street Journal, the LA Times, the Sydney Morning Herald, The Mirror, the Universal, the Newsday, The Daily Mail, the Evening Standard, the USA Today, The Star Tribune and the King Feature Syndicate.
