"a lot of leave way"

I’m starting to see “leave way” for “leeway” more and more often—although the phrase “of leave way” only shows up 142 times with a Google search.

My favorite example: “The Lord gives us a lot of leave way if we are in ignorance which seems to be the case here on your part similar to myself for all those years.”—http://www.cephas-library.com/catholic/ … cross.html

Also: “Anyway my point is ferrari have been given a lot of leave way with the FIA and they’ re opinion is highley respected with the FIA, and as we’ve seen their opinion is acted on without regards to others!!”—http://www.jensonf1.com/forum/forums/th … &quote=yes

Re: "a lot of leave way"

A cool find. Googling the one-word version “leaveway” gets 490 hits, of which at least 154 are unique—and the great majority appear to be your reshaping.
