I had the following conversation with my ten-year-old daughter a few weeks ago.
Grace: Dad, what does this word mean? (She points at the word transition in one of my short stories).
Me: It’s when you change from one thing to another, like when you transition from the living room to the kitchen.
Grace: Oh. So it means the same as segue?
Me: (Laughing) Yes, hon.
