    I don't think you can add them other than by the keyboard learning them as you type. BlackBerry's have that ability, but I have not seen it on Android.

    It should add them as you type or you may have to click on the " new " word as its displayed above in the predictive word area to confirm its entry into your keyboard dictionary.

    I'm not sure, but I thought that if you pressed that right-pointing arrow in the section above the keyboard (where it shows possible words), that would add it to the dictionary. If that's not what the arrow button does, can someone clarify what it is used for?

    It's used as a "next" button, sometimes for moving to the next field on a page/form etc...

    Hmm. That makes sense, but when I've used it, it hasn't moved to another field. That could be because I haven't used it when there were more than one available field though. I never paid that much attention.

    The way I've usually used it has been to force words I type to stay that way and prevent the keyboard from auto-correcting them to something else. Once I finish typing the word the keyboard wants to auto-correct if I type a space, I hit that arrow key and it moves ahead leaving the word as I typed it. It's always seemed to work for preventing auto-correct, so I thought that was its purpose. If not though, how are you supposed to prevent words from getting changed by auto-correct?

    Go to settings, control, language and input, samsung keyboard settings, then turn off auto replacement.

    Maybe I wasn't clear, but I wasn't asking asking about how to turn off auto-correct completely. I was asking about preventing auto-correct on a per-word basis. From my experience, it seems like using the arrow key above the keyboard does that, and I think it also adds the word to the dictionary.

    I think the arrow is supposed to add the word but it doesn't work right all the time. Sometimes the keyboard still tries to auto correct words that I've added using the arrow key.

    I stumbled on this by chance but if you go into settings/controls/language and input, click personal dictionaries, choose one of the dictionaries there and click the "plus" sign at the top right you can add words like "i'mma" or "ur" hope this helps... Make sure to add the words to both dictionaries if u see more then one.

    There is but a bit different from how it was described above - go to Settings/Controls/Language and Input and it is the second option

    So I played around with this a lot more and figured some things out. The curved right arrow does indeed make it learn the word. Type something strange, tap the curved arrow and then type the same thing again and you will see your new word in the list. Also, long press the new word and it will give you the option to forget it.

    I also figured that all this would be specific to whatever keyboard you are using so explore the options under Samsung Keyboard and you will find many interesting things including these predictive text settings:

    I'm probably way late to the party here, but you need to use the Swype keyboard on your Note. Not the Samsung keyboard. Go to settings= language and input= keyboards and input methods. Under default, choose Swype instead of Samsung keyboard. I noticed with the change to 4.3, the Samsung keyboard wasn't as good. The Swype keyboard works better for me. I can save words to dictionary and the predictive text is much better. Hope this helps.
    I have a Samsung galaxy note 2,btw.

    Guys Thank you all very much but i'm still looking for answers to my question in this regard , if anyone can help I'd appreciate it !

    I tried Samsung and Swype keyboard and I was more comfortable with Samsung one, did you guys finally find out why we can't add new words to this keyboard on Note3?
    Swype does learn and add to it's dictionary but has its own issues: a) it hangs and slows down the system. b) I'm not crazy about it's key setup and multiple pages to use numbers or symbols c) I see online that there's a monthly charge for using MMS...

    If my Samsung would just learn my words I'm one happy guy !!!

    thanks

    You actually can add new words. all you have to do is go to SETTING/CONTROLS/LANGUAGE AND INPUT/ hit the gear next to SAMSUNG KEYBOARD/ tap on the words PREDICTIVE TEXT and then tap LEARN FROM MESSAGES. Once this is done, start a text message and then hit the white arrow that comes up. Your phone has now learned the word that you wanted it too.

    When you are typing the word there should be an arrow in the suggestion box hit that arrow key and the word is added

    Turn off the auto replacement in samsung keyboard settings and you will see it is able to learn words.

    Just type the word in and at the top of the keyboard where it suggests other words, just hit the check sign.That's it. There is no visual feedback, but by hitting that check you are telling the app that the word highlighted is spelled correctly. Next time you start to input that word it will show up as a suggestion. Cool?
