    Usage of "Ingress"

    Hello!
    I got into an argument with a coworker - could "Ingress" word be used as a synonym for "opening paragraph" or any other words directly related to writing articles?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    No, it couldn't. It's an uncommon word. The only use I can think of for it is in the phrase to gain ingress, which means to find a way into a place.
