    Default Android Word Prediction

    Hello,

    I can't seem to find an answer to this problem, so hopefully somebody knows.

    I use the native keyboard, and I once used caps to emphasize a word by typing "I JUST..." in a text, and now anytime I type "I" followed by "just," the text prediction changes it to "JUST."

    Obviously this isn't desired, and since "just" is a word, nothing has been added to the personal dictionary in order for me to delete it. I have no idea how to get my phone to stop predicting "JUST" without resetting all of the keyboard data.

    If it helps:

    Android 4.2.2

    Welcome to the forums.
    Try a different keyboard app. I use Google's and it properly corrects it. I tried many variations of I just and it properly corrected me.

    Using a different keyboard shouldn't be required to fix that issue.

    I did turn off word prediction for a little while, and after I turned it back on, it started behaving properly again. Maybe this is a hidden way of getting the prediction system to reset itself.

    You may be able to long press the word prediction (JUST) and delete it from the dictionary. See if that helps and clears out the prediction.

    It started happening again, and I've tried deleting the word. Long pressing doesn't work.
