Jack Sparrow was known to use the word throughout his pirate career.

"Son, I'm Captain Jack Sparrow. Savvy?"
Jack Sparrow to Gillette[src]

Savvy is a term used as a synonym for "wisdom" or "understanding". It is derived from the Portugese sabe ("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]
