NOT A TEACHER
No, savere, isn't, as you can see, an existing English word. Did you mean "severe"?
Student or Learner
Excuse me, English is non-native language for me.that`s why could you tell me whether I can say "Desperately savere man" or it`s not clear for native English speaker?
You`re rigth. That`s a misprint..
Thanks a lot. I don`t think that context is really important for us.
Well, sorry, but context is really important for us.
One can be desperately ill/poor/tired/unhappy/lonely/worried because when one is ill/poor and so on, one can become desperate, so one who is desperately ill, is very ill. I don't see how you can be "desperately severe". It sounds strange, and as Raymott has rightfully pointed out, context is needed.

I`m writing letter and i siad that my brother was desperately severe and didn`t give any information about my PC.
Then maybe I would say something like "He makes me desperate with his severity" or "His severity is driving me crazy".
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
