Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
It depends on your typeface and kerning. In the case of this blog, with it's single-spaced slab-serif body font, it looks exactly like two vs. ARGH that looks like the abreviation of verses, not a plural V. Anyway, I think you're safe to use luvvie in some circumstances, after you examine the typography.
I *hadn't* noticed that, but perhaps that's because I'm never tempted to use the word 'luvvie'. Or 'skivvy'. Are there others?
Jess- I'm unsure what kerning is, but I'm guessing it's some kind of wood wind instrument. Also you are right that it is not a problem with the font on my blog, but look here in the comment section- two vv's are totally a w.Belle- Take away skivvie and luvvie, and that's like 65% of my blog posts gone.
Spell luvvie with one 'v'...thus avoiding the problem AND giving it a nice Scottish twist...
Recently I had cause to to search for somebody's gravestone. The gentleman in question (who may have been a bit of a difficult type) lies interred under a massive slab inscribed "... IN LOWING MEMORY OF ....". That is definately not LUVVING.
OFAW- Ha! Yes, good call.Vaughan- Wow, gravestone research.. many questions arise. What does 'lowing' memory mean?
Belle, I just struk another one just now writing an email: savvy
