Well, I have a music dictionary (written in Hungarian)
and it says it's "decresc."

There must be some online dictionaries or music books,
but I don't really know any of them.

In Wikipedia the word is abbreviated "decresc.":

I have searched the web, and all right, there are many variants of
this abbreviation: decr., decres., decresc. Though I don't know how
reliable these websites are.
