savvy, savvey (AmE :))
- No savvy
‘savvy’, ‘savvey’… sound quite colloquial, don’t they?
Just ask BNC and it immediately confirms
‘Web savvy clients’
‘be savvy to the market’ (?)
‘must be savvy to integrate’
- these are expressions quite often used in documents (including those written in the UK, by BE native speakers :))
‘political savvy’… (I don’t know what it means, but it’s in use)
What do you think about savvy in modern English?
Just colloquial or ‘acceptable’?
As a noun? As an adjective? As a verb?
