Savvy is a term used as a synonym for "wisdom" or "understanding". It is derived from the Portugese sabe ("he knows") and the Latin sapere ("to be wise"). Savviness relates to practical understanding, shrewdness or intelligence.[1]

The word was commonly used by Jack Sparrow, often as a question, in which context the word was thought to mean "Understand?" or "Get it?"[2]
