When I am in ICS, whenever I type a wording, followed by space, Android will suggest me several useful punctuations like ,.

I love this behaviour as it is useful to me.

However, now in Jelly Bean, the behaviour is changed. They no longer suggest me punctuations. Instead, when I type "I" followed by space, it will suggest me am. This is not something what I want.

Is there any where I can fall back to old behaviour?

This new feature is called Next word prediction. You can easily disable it to restore the ICS behavior but it's a bit hidden:

  1. Go to Settings > Language & input
  2. Tap on the setting icon beside Android keyboard under the Keyboard & input methods section
  3. At the bottom you'll find Advanced settings, tap it
  4. There you'll find Next word prediction, uncheck it:

Advanced input settings screen

After that, typing I followed by space will bring up the punctuation again instead of predicted words.
