out of harm's way

in harm's way

I have created harm's way, which includes the sense consistent with all four prepositions that commonly collocate with it (in, out of, into, from) and other use (eg. as object of "escape"). The noun phrase can also accept modification by determiners, possessives, and a small number of adjectives, which is obscured by treating the full prepositional phrases as idioms.

I believe both in harm's way and out of harm's way (which we have) and into harm's way and from harm's way (which we do not) should be redirects (hard or soft) to harm's way, with one usex or citation for each. DCDuring TALK 14:10, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Agree with all elements of this eminently reasonable proposal. · 05:49, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
