Learned Words Don't Go Away!
I'm on gingerbread and I started really using the swype keyboard. There are some words that I made up and will automatically choose it even though that's not the word I want. I know I can double tap and choose the right word or make swype ask me if that's the right word more often but I don't want to! I deleted all the words in the user dictionary, and I can still text using my learned words that I deleted from the dictionary. Am I missing something? Can someone test on their phone if deleting a learned word from the user dictionary really gets rid of the word or not?

There are two dictionaries with stored words ... One is for the words learned by the X as you type and the other is a set of words you enter. The first one is the one you want to clear:
Settings > Language & keyboard > Multi-touch keyboard settings > Clear User Dictionary (this deletes all learned works from the X)
Settings > Language& keyboard > User Dictionary (these are the words YOU enter for the X to remember)Always learning ...

Re: Learned Words Don't Go Away!
I am having a similar issue with typo'd learned words not being removed. I have cleared every dictionary in my phone known to man--the User Dictionary, the swype dictionary, the multi-touch keyboard dictionary, all of it. These incorrectly entered words are still showing up in the ribbon control. I have tried this with both the SD card present and the SD card removed.
The real of this is, that this is a new phone body aka new internal hard-drive. I have recently replaced the phone 'cause my last one finally died, and verizon just happened to have a replacement Droid X. This implies to me that these incorrect learned words were backed up and re-downloaded.
I would appreciate help with this issue that does not suggest editing my User Dictionary, I've seen that suggestion a bajillion + 1 times and it is not the right answer.
