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.

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