    Default Bad autocorrect for words with apostrophes

    S5, US, Verizon unmodified in anyway

    Whenever I type a word with an apostrophe (I'll, we'll, Don't etc) the regular on board keyboard corrects it to something like I'I'll we'we'll and don'don't every time. I have, when I've noticed the suggestion appear, attempted to delete these words from the user dictionary but they keep coming back. I can't even find access to the entire user dictionary to delete there, just the suggestion bar.

    It's very annoying as I keep getting doubled words when typing fast. Anyone know a fix? It's only happening on apostrophe words and I never "taught" those words to my phone.

    It's like it is trying to correct by replacing the correct word's last letter with the entire word.

    I have this exact same issue with my Galaxy S5 as well, also Verizon. Doubles every word when I type " 's " and hit space. Did you every find a solution?

    Learned a little more which may be of use to you. I thought it could have been an issue with Swipe as I keep Swipe disabled but it also turns itself back on somehow. After turning the Swipe application itself off I ruled that out. I found though that when you type an apostrophe quickly followed by a letter and the space bar the word is duplicated, however if you pause for a second after typing the apostrophe then the word will not be duplicated when you press space. It's very odd, definitely a bug in auto correct. Makes sense that it only happens when you're typing fast.
