"Diminishing" is an English equivalent of the Italian and Portuguese word diminuendo. The present participle most famously refers to softer and softer volumes in music. The respective pronunciations will be "DEE-mee-NWEN-do" in Pisan Italian and "DJEE-mee-NWEN-doo" in Cariocan Brazilian and in continental Portuguese.
