    Effectivity

    While there are a couple of closed posts discussing effectivity which breifly mention a technical application for the word, the posts essentially dismiss the usage as sloppy at best. In the engineering community the word is commonly used - especially in Aerospace. The FAA http://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/m...AC%2023-8C.pdf uses the word rather often to characterize the effectivity of a change or directive. A limited effectivity directive does not apply to the entire fleet and only applies to the specified aircraft. The engineering community who often relies on the the spell checking software more than many struggle when the software insists the word should not be used.
