A leave is a leap from work. About 600 ghits. “Leaf of absence’ also occurs but is less common and doesn’t make as much sense. Examples of both:
Following the incident coach Elford took a leap of absence for over one week.
i just started reading your story again after taking a sort of leap of absence,
and I have to say, I am definitely intrigued…
... if you could afford it, id ask for a leap of
absence for close to a month, and completly get coding out of your head…
... I dont want someone that disappears for like a month or two unless you have
a reason like exams or something or announce a leap of absence.
Soon taking a temporary leap of absence for a major milestone
I have the honour to ask wither you will grant me (10) ten days leaf of absence
Miss Hettie White will most likely go off on a year’s leaf of absence. www.hickmansfamily.homestead.com/files/jehF.htm
