I am loving my rooted G3. I am, however, increasing annoyed by "thou" showing up almost every time I swype " you". Is there anyway thou can think of to remove this cursed word for the word list.

I don't use the stock keyboard, you could either elect to use a third party keyboard, or maybe see if you can edit the dicitonary in the stock offering. I found this link for you (personal dictionary) but have no idea if it works on the G3 as I have removed all of that garbage from my phone.

I don't have an issue with Thou popping up in place of You. But instead nearly everytime I type the word "and" it replaces it with "abd"

wtf does abd even commonly stand for?

I've tried checking the default keyboard settings and dictionaries but there's no way to edit the inbuilt dictionary, only the personal ones. And I have not added this word "abd" to it.

It's the new keyboard update. It's crap when it comes to auto correct.

Maybe start swiping from Y instead of T?

Regarding abd, swipe from A to N instead of B....

Problem solved, it is a matter of swiping correctly, the same would happen in swiftkey if you swipe the same way...
