Saw an article today that included the word 'segueways'. Gave me rather a start, it did. But it does make good sense: why on earth should 'segue' be a two-syllable word, when words like 'tongue' and 'vogue' aren't? (Other than the insignificant fact that it comes from Italian, and fairly recently too.) And then there's confusion with that 'Segway' transporter contraption. But everyone knows there's a 'ue' in there making trouble...so just put 'em all together and spell it 'segueway'. After all, 2,260 other people have already.
