I use gesture (swipe) typing on my phone to enter text.
However, sometimes when I enter certain words, the keyboard suggests emoji icons instead of the word I typed.
For example, when I gesture type the word 'man', I am suggested the male symbol, but if I tap type the word 'man', it works fine and I am suggested the word instead. See images below.
As you can imagine this is frustrating when typing quickly.
This happens in all applications.
I'm using a Nexus 5 running KitKat 4.4.4.
How can I disable emojis from being suggested when gesture typing?
