    Well what you could do is this. Go to any app that has text input. Then Type a word and then Click that arrow above the keys. It'll add that word and recognize it next time. Only drawback being I don't know how to remove that word. LOL.

    To remove it, when it appears in the suggested words area you long press it and it will ask you if you'd like to remove it...

    On the Keyboard press and hold the microphone button until a menu appears. Then select the settings icon "gear cog". This will open the keyboard menu. Select predictive text by clicking the text not toggling the switch. Then click "clear personal data", confirm the deletion and that deletes the whole personal dictionary.

    The menu can also be reached through settings-->language and input-->samsung keyboard-->predictive text-->clear personal data

    Hope this helps

    Go to settings > controls > language and input > personal dictionary and you can add words there by hitting the + in the top right corner.

    Same for me, it doesn't remember words, I've found I've had to use that arrow so that it would not change the word that it wants to change!

    z06mike's advice/help does work though, I go there to add words to my dictionary.

    I honestly just signed up with this site to tell you guys how I figured it out on my S4 running 4.4.2 haha. I was searching the same issue and came across this thread. It's definitely different from previous firmwares, but go to Settings>My Device>Language and Input>(Gear next to keyboard: mine says Samsung Keyboard obviously)>(Click Over Predictive Text(confusing since I thought the only option was On/Off))>(Check Box for "Personalized Data" and choose which apps you want it to retrieve data from)

    I've never used a Note 3, but this should be similar except for the name of the keyboards we're using. Hope that helps!

    All those tips are sorta helpful,
    BUT
    "personal dictionary" is not on my Note 3.

    I really like that Android is so configurable. I really don't like that Samsung (& other vendors incl Google) so freely add and remove access to important controls (like adding & subtracting things from the dictionary!!!) and there is no 'fix' for those seeking to gain access.

    The only option I've found is to let Samsung KB scan all of my contacts / Twitter / Gmail / txt msgs to 'find words/phrases' to add to the dictionary.

    Wow, I can't do it myself, but the company can filter all of my stuff (which I don't nec want to send to them) and filter it for me. No thank you!

    Wondering if I need to root the phone to get to the dictionary files?!?!?

    Question Re: Note 3: Adding words to personal dictionary

    I cant even find that on my phone. Personally its past irritating to have to enter and reenter my daughters name. I have no dictionary and have tried entering the words in other programs, still not working.

    I downloaded the Swipe app and paid for it. Now I have the dictionary. It all looks different now but I will get used to it.

    I had to tap in the word and then space...type in the word again and hit arrow down in the word choice list...your word should be in there somewhere...tap on it and the next time you swipe it should be in word selection bar or just swipe in as a remembered word...I just tried and this works.

    Install and use the application called "User Dictionary Manager." It allows you to view and edit your user dictionary.

    This was what i needed. My personalized data was checked but i also had to click on learn from messages below. Now it seems to be working fine. Prior to doing this it would only remember words for a day or so and then i couldn't use swype anymore to type them.

    thanks.

    I think this will help...
    I was trying to get the SAMSUNG NOTE 3 with ANDROID 5.0 (chewing-gum on my shoe) to ADD WORDS TO MY DICTIONARY and for the best will in the world, GET RID OF THE RED UNDERLINING...

    Do this in any text-entry place:

    1. Type the word/name your want (ignore any suggestions or auto-corrections and do what you gotta do to get the mofo to show the text exactly as you want it - bear with me)

    2. Long-press on the word (on my phone if you do that then some buttons appear above or below the word like "select all" and "copy" or whatever - but that's ok, ignore it).

    3. After you remove your finger from the long press and the text is still highlighted, even if the buttons mentioned in (2.) appear, just swipe down on the word a little distance

    4. You will notice that the word becomes highlighted in a very nice light red/pink colour and there is a small drop-down list. The list might contain some spelling suggestions, but more importantly for this purpose, ADD TO DICTIONARY.

    5. Do what you gotta do

    I was annoyed at this feature because I was trying to get my lock screen personal message to appear without an ugly red line under it. My message was supposed to be { الحمداللہ } but stupid auto-correct kept changing it to { الحمداللۃ } which is just wrong. So once I finally managed to get the thing to display what I wanted, I was not pleased to find a red line under the phrase. Anyway, it's all sorted now, thank God, so I just thought I'd share that for anyone else who was struggling.
