The stock soft keyboard on Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro has a feature called 'Learn words' (Settings > Language & keyboard > International Keyboard > Text input settings > Learn words) that learns from user input and adds them to the autocorrect dictionary. Over time however this has resulted in many misspelled words also being added to my autocorrect suggestions. I want to start this over from a fresh canvas. So how do I reset my autocorrect dictionary? When I go to Language & keyboard > User dictionary so I'm guessing Sony Ericsson uses its own keyboard replacement with its own user dictionary store.

  • On my Droid, Settings > Language & keyboard offers a "User dictionary" option, where I can see the words I've added and edit or delete them. Has that been removed from your device? – ale Dec 10 '11 at 18:03

    @AlEverett That menu entry is and always has been blank. – Ankur Banerjee Dec 12 '11 at 0:22
  • I am looking for the same answer for the Xperia Pro. I guess it is a common issue on all Xperia phones, or at least those with a physical keyboard. Please if you find how to do it, post the answer here, I would much appreciate it. – Alejandro DC Feb 18 '12 at 8:30

Best answer I've found so far:

You could try clearing all data from the keyboard.

Menu>Settings>Applications>Running Applications then tap All. Scroll down and find Internation Keyboard (if thats the one you are using) and Clear Data.

Of course, it will also set the keyboard to the original settings.

Anyway, I would like to find a way to remove some misspellings and not all the learned words, so if somebody knows how to do it, I will be glad to hear from it.

Don't wipe everything. It is possible to delete individual words.

I have the Experia T, I and have just done this:

  • Open a text
  • Click to reply so the keyboard pops up
  • press the 12!? button down-left corner
  • Go across to the right, and click on the spanner icon
  • Go in to My Words
  • Hold your finger down on a word, and down the right of the screen will pop up a box next to each word
  • Ticking the boxes of the ones you don't want
  • Hit delete, and they all magically disappear.
