to move smoothly and unhesitatingly from one state, condition, situation, or element to another
It’s pronounced SEGway, the way the personal transportation device is spelled.This word appears a couple times in the book The Know-It-All: “Next, I impress my nieces and nephew with stories about fossilized dinosaur poop (it’s called coprolite). I segue into the best method for storing manure (stack it, so that it doesn’t leach nitrogen), which wasn’t quite as big a hit. But I redeem myself with the casebearing beetle. When it’s threatened, it pulls its legs inward and disguises itself as caterpillar droppings.” The word’s origin is the same as that of sequence.
