dictionary - How to access Android language dictionaries
Tuesday 30th of August 2011
Is it possible to access (programatically, using a text editor, etc.) each dictionary of the built in languages in Android? The automatic word completion is really useful but it has a major problem when it comes to SMS messaging. I'm Hungarian and our alphabet contains special letters like 'á', 'ő', 'ú' and so on. As you can see each basic letter has a single or a double accent on the top of it (or a dot). If that accent leans to the right like this: 'á' then only 70 letters are allowed to send in a single SMS message. There is another version of that letter in Android when the accent leans to the left: 'à'. Using this will not reduce the 160 letters to 70. Unfortunately all the built in Hungarian words use the wrong version of those letters so I have two options when composing a new SMS message: Turn off word completion and use the basic letters like 'a', 'o', 'u'.Use word completion but correct the wrong letters. This takes at least twice as much time to complete a text message.So I'm wondering if it would possible to rewrite the dictionary of a language in any way?
auto correct - Delete certain mis-spelled words from Android dictionary (These words were not listed in the "Personal dictionary")
Saturday 23rd of February 2013
I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia mini (running Android 4.04). I'm trying to remove a few embarrassing words which show up during typing. I tried through Settings → Language and input → Personal dictionary. When I checked the Personal dictionary, I see that there are no such words listed, though there is an option to add new words to this list. I added a few words and then afterwards I could delete them also. But I couldn't find any way to delete those words which come up during typing messages etc.I might previously have typed those wrong spellings accidentally, and I think through the Learn new words automatically when typed feature the words have been added to the main dictionary.Is there any way to remove them from there? I don't want to turn off the auto-complete/suggestions feature completely.
Turning off text prediction whilst writing email?
Friday 18th of February 2011
Afternoon All,Something's been bugging me for a while and I can't work out how to solve it. Often, whilst composing an email (Gmail) I will write stuff that is not a word. The predictive text tries to make sense of it at which point I either don't realise and get a word I did not expect in the email, or I have to choose the letters I did type from the list of predictive text options, thereby adding it to the dictionary.I don't really want to add things to the dictionary willy nilly like that, but can't work out how to temporarily turn off the predictive text whilst writing an email.Surely there must be a way? My old phone could do it (not that it did much else, to be fair!).Cheers,Al.

Dictionary.com Why do I need the internet?
Thursday 07th of October 2010
So I have had an Ipod touch before and I'm somewhat regrading getting an android for the lack of apps. The battery life isn't that great neither vs from what I gotten with my Ipod but thats another story. The only thing I want is the Dictionary to work... I love Dictionary.com Thesaurus it works great, on the ipod as I can use it offline, it only needs online to do spell checking, with the Android I need it to be online to do simple things as just checking definitions. Not sure how this small app does it on an Ipod but it works great.What I like about android is the amount of freedom you get. The ability to turn things off and the way the UI is laid out. The big widgets. So I would like to know. Is there some way of getting the full dictionary without having to be connected to the internet?
Android dictionary missing basic words
Friday 06th of April 2012
Just like the title says, i went to use my phone today and start texting on it and i noticed that it kept auto correcting simple words i was using like missing, or even the word "word". Yesterday the dictionary was just fine, and now its acting weird, also im using the swype keyboard just like i always have been. Also all the words that seem to be missing it asks me to add them to the dictionary after i hit the spacebar. I havent added any new apps or done anything out of the ordinary in the past day so im not too sure what is going on but it is really annoying to have to add every single basic word into the dictionary. I had to turn off auto correct just because none of my text messages would make sense.
Need help removing a "dictionary" word from my phone!
Wednesday 20th of November 2013
Hi guys.Over the past few days, the word "DONT" has ended up in my phone's dictionary. Now, whenever I type "dont" and expect the phone to automatically place an apostrophe in the correct place (via spellcheck), it changes the word to "DONT" instead. It's a vexing occurrence, seeing as I've already gone into Settings > Language & Input > Personal Dictionary and cleared the few words that were there. And "DONT" wasn't among them. I've had to completely turn off the spell checker, which I'd rather keep active.Can someone shed some light on this issue? Thanks in advance.
Adding custom words into dictionary
Monday 19th of May 2014
I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro. I've been trying to find out how to add words into the dictionary when I use Predictive text. Many time I have to turn off the predictive function to type in words not found in the dictionary and then turn it back on again to continue my SMS. Is there a way to add custom words?
