segway/segue

“Segue” is one of my favorite words, because it is fun to say. It is pronounced like “segway”, but has an entirely different meaning.

To “segue” (v) is to move seamlessly from one activity to another. A “segue” (n) is a smooth transition from one thing or activity to another.

“Segway” is the brand name of a “human transporter”–a sort of super scooter that supposedly smoothly moves its riders from one place to another.
