It seems that asking this question has encouraged me actually make a proper effort to poke around the phone's settings enough to find a workable solution, which is to enable Spell correction for the QWERTY keyboard word suggestions / predictions. The option is enabled in the location: Settings Language & Keyboard Touch Input Text Input QWERTY ...

So I was facing the same issue as well, and after getting no help from internet and forums, I contacted swype, here is the reply I received from them. I have not tried it yet, but I expect it to work. * This is, unfortunately, a known issue with the beta on some devices; it is particularly prevalent on the HTC Incredible, and occurs specifically ...

So far, it seems like this dictionary has eluded people all over. There are a few things that have worked for most people as far as getting swype under control. To delete a single word, type it using Swype, highlight it (by clicking or double clicking the word), and press the Swype key (button with "info" icon) To add a word, type it very carefully letter ...

EDIT: it's not the answer you want, but provides useful info nonetheless, here's the userdict file: /data/data/com.android.providers.userdictionary/databases/user_dict.db You need root to access it and sqlite3 to view the data inside (here's mine): localhost # cd /data/data/com.android.providers.userdictionary/databases/ localhost # sqlite3 user_dict.db ...

This is positioned high in Google, so I'm gonna paste my solution here. I own a Sonyericsson Xperia Arc S and the Personal Dictionary list was empty. The way to go was to go into the app listing (all apps), find the Xperia Keyboard service and Clear Data. It resets every keyboard configuration, but it's how it works.

This appears to be a "fix" for the issue.. but it requires root to write to /system/app. I don't want to root my device just to get a standard feature. Download these two files: LatinImeGoogle.apk & LatinImeDictionaryPack.apk Put the apk's onto your sd card Copy the apk's Navigate to /system/app and paste the apk's into the directory ...

I fixed it! The trick was to clear the cache and data for Google Keyboard. Settings => Apps => ALL* => Google Keyboard => {Clear Data, Clear Cache} * Be sure to go to ALL instead of RUNNING. The instance under RUNNING will not give you the correct data clearing options.

I'm not sure, but I think that when the SD card is mounted by a computer through USB the phone can't access it. I'd hazard a guess that you used the keyboard while you were plugged into the USB and swype couldn't get at it's dictionary so it started a new one which was saved to SD once USB was unplugged. That could be worth an experiment.

The following is the way I enable additional spell checkers on my Galaxy Nexus which runs on vanilla Android 4.3, I hope it will be the same for your Moto G: Open your app drawer and go to Settings > Language & input Scroll down to Keyboard & Input Methods section: If your Google Keyboard is enabled, tap its settings button, if not, enable it ...

As I was writing that question I stumbled upon the answer in a really convoluted menu pathway. I was unable to find it in my prior research on the internet so I'll post it up in case anyone is looking in future. Open the settings app. Go to Language & Keyboard. Touch the Settings Button next to Touch Input under Keyboard & input methods Touch ...

You should be able to invoke dictionary apps like GoldenDict or ColorDict by "sharing" to them:

I just fixed it! I'm running a Galaxy Nexus phone with Android 4.3 and I had a similar problem. In addition to saving words like "thibk" and "tou" (go home, thumbs, you're drunk), it somehow ended up containing the word "THEYRE," much like OP's "DONT." This drove me insane - how dare the Great Googly One tell me not to use an apostrophe? It's my right as an ...

Go to the Play store, and install Google Keyboard. This includes its own spell checking dictionary. Navigate to: Settings -> Language & Input -> Spelling correction And select "Google Spell Check". You can click the settings icon to change the language too.

As you've noticed, the app you're typing into can tell a "hint" to the keyboard app (or input method) to let it know what kind of text to expect, such as an email address. It's then up to the keyboard app to decide how to interpret that. For example, it can look in your contacts for email addresses. You haven't said which keyboard app you're using, but from ...

User Dictionary Manager might be what you are looking for. From the description: UDM is an application that allows you to edit/export/import/delete/clean the user dictionary words found on your Android phone.

If you're using the stock Android keyboard, you can report it on the central Android bug tracker. Be warned that there are already more than 25000 reports there, and many never receive any response from Google. If you find a bug in a third-party keyboard you're using, visit the keyboard's page in Google Play (either through the Play Store app or on the ...

I have been able to add and edit words on my Samsung Galaxy S2 running Jellybean 4.1.2 by using a free app called QuickShortcutMaker. The app allows me to create a home screen shortcut to the user dictionary. A detailed tutorial can be found here: How to Add & Edit Words in the User Dictionary on Jelly Bean 4.1.2

Most are found at: Settings -> Language & Keyboard -> User Dictionary Android 2.3.7 (Cyanogenmod 7.1): Menu -> Settings -> Language and keyboard settings -> User Dictionary press Menu then Add Android 4.0 (ICS): Settings -> Language & Keyboard -> Touch ...

I found a related github repo but don't know if its official or from some ROM developer. From the source the file heads_of_state.txt is listed under IME but has been removed in the latest commit (the only other commit). The commit message is "Deleted uneeded LG's Calibration apk". I can't conclude anything from this but maybe this will be helpful.

That is not supported, but there are some workarounds: You could change language to something unused, before pressing space, and switching back afterwards. Or you may enter two spaces and place the cursor in between, and then type the word. I really like Swype, but that's one of its drawbacks...

You could also try to just add the words you use most of the time, even it is from a different language. That is what I do. When I'm using one language, and I need a word that is available in the other language, I just type it and add it to my personal dictionary. Over time I will have two dictionaries who will probably both have the words I use the most.
