leadway into < lead-in to

Very similar to leeway into < lead-in to . Also to leadway << leeway and leaveway < leeway

I posted a video of Basiago giving some leadway into how these types of things were done.

This is going to give him something of a leadway into the kind of things he would like to do and administer them accordingly.

If you could give me any leadway into the exact steps I need to take, I’d REALLY appreciate it!

So I tell you all that as a leadway into the challenge this week ….. phew! It’s that time of year to be thankful! So the challenge is:

So I had the perfect leadway into the conversation. The guy was really nice and gave me some good info about Fort Collins and things to do,

Each song is a leadway into the next portion of the story. The music can stand on their own even without the albums’ theme, but they work …

Again there is blending going on among phrases like a/some/the lead-in to , what leads in(to) , _(an) entrance/entryway into_ , and others, with the salient addition in this case of headway (into) . Maybe a lead (on the competition) which is synonymous with a head start .
.
Again, there are enough hits that it looks likely to be standard for some, and it makes sense. I’d call it an eggcorn.

Re: leadway into < lead-in to

Nicely twisted. I don’t know if I’d call it an eggcorn exactly, but it is tasty. Here are some more that link to headway.

MY MOTHER WAS SO EXCITED AND MY BFF AS WELL, AND ALTHO I SHOULD BE AS WELL, MAYBE WE CAN FINALLY MAKE SOME LEADWAY INTO WHATS GOING ON INSIDE OF MY HEAD

I would have liked this even it if had been, “maybe we can finally make some headway into my head.”
