    This removes all your saved words so you have to start over just to get rid of one.

    Does the word "true" auto-capitilize for anyone? I might try this reset thing and see, but I don't recall adding it.

    I don't like how it doesn't let you save curse words.

    I'd like to remove a built-in word. In Swedish the cretin that is responsible for the dictionary autocorrects the word meaning 'good' to the name of an NGO which admittedly is not too dissimilar, but, in context NOT VERY LIKELY!!!

    Translated it would look like this, sort of: "I saw No Country for Old Men again on Netflix last night - I had forgotten how ACLU it is.". WAT

    I guess nobody has a solution for this?

    In my case there is a similar problem. I'm German and I often type the word "fr" (which means "for" in english, so you got an idea how often Germans need that word). But typing an "" is unhandy so I always type "fur" and want my phone to correct it automatically. But for that I have to remove the word "fur" from the dictionary. Is there any way?

    Nevertheless I'm glad the dictionary is that great because I just type all words with , or without them and they get corrected.

    so - there's a quick way to just type the [] character you want - just press and hold the [u] on screen - a list of alternate characters will pop up. no need to go searching through alternate character keyboards. this literally takes maybe one more second to type the word - and you don't have to worry about removing a legitimate English word from your dictionary to do it.

    So when is the English dictionary going to change the built-in made-up word "Pokemon"
    (pronounced"poke mon") to the real word "Pokmon" (pronounced "po key mon" or "po kay mon")?
    You have to type it in letter-by-letter and even if you add it to the dictionary it doesn't even SUGGEST "Pokmon" when you swipe the word.

    There is a way but its with Cortana and its "Stop getting to know me", then toggle it off then on again, and it should wipe the dictionary. Editors did an article about it awhile ago. Hopefully MS will make it easier to do, cause even i was struggling to find it today...
