Default [Q] How to remove "abd" from dictionary

So, I'm using the HTC gesture keyboard (like Swype) and I'm hoping that someone can help me to remove a word from the dictionary. Everytime I try to spell the word "and", I get "abd". I will never use the word "abd". Is there a way to remove it from the dictionary? Thanks....

Did you accidentally add it to your dictionary? If so simple remove it by going to the input settings ,under personal dictionary and remove it, if your not sure you can also check

Sadly no. It's in the "stock" dictionary apparently.

This has been plaguing me since even the M7. It drives me absolutely nuts and I have not yet found any fix for it -_-

To delete a word, in the keyboard's settings, select "personal dictionary". Then press on the menu dots in the upper right corner of the screen. Select delete from the menu. This will take you to another screen. Find the word you want to get rid of and put checkmark to the right of it. Then press delete at the bottom right of the page. Should get the job done for you.

That's IF it's a word user added. He is referring to a word already in the dictionary

I had to look up what this word meant. Apparently abt means "all but dissertation," for someone going for a PHD. That being said I don't think this should be default in a dictionary either.
