"Savvy" can be a noun, verb or adjective in (American) English. It's a bit confusing.

comment Differences in meaning depending on placement of “pauvre?”
@My question was not, "can you put this adjective before or after the noun?" but "what are the differences in MEANING when you do so?" Apparently there were several "similar" questions in this regard. But they all use DIFFERENT adjectives with different meanings. Unless there is a "master list" (on this site) of such adjectives, including "pauvre," I do not consider this question a duplicate, and ask that my question be re-opened.

comment Why the pronounciation of “Monsieur?”
@LeVieuxGildas: I said that Monsieur was pronounced MORE LIKE [emphasis added] "Miss-sieur" (to my ear). That does not rule out your more correct transliteration, "Meussieu."

@Gilles: As edited, the question is clear enough. Now the issue is, "is it on topic?"
