English[edit]

Verb[edit]

segueway

  1. Misspelling of segue.

Usage notes[edit]

This misspelling is based on the mistaken assumption that the written word segue is pronounced /ˈsɛɡ/ from a presumed French origin (the non-existent word sègue), and that the spoken word pronounced /ˈsɛɡweɪ/ is the compound word segue-way. segue is actually of Italian origin, where it is pronounced /ˈsɛɡwe/.
