Edit Built-in Dictionary
ok.. so I'm using swype to ask my wife "what's for dinner"
but it sent "what's for donner".. I love swype and I love how it
finds the right word from the dictionary.
I know you can add words to the user dictionary.
but I would like to delete words from the built in dictionary.
like "donner" .. I'm pretty sure I will never say the word "donner" on purpose..
I am rooted.

i've done a lot of googling on this as well and have decided it's not possible.
however, i'm looking at an app called "smart keyboard pro"
Another very powerful feature of the keyboard is the custom AutoText. An AutoText is a shortcut which will replace any typed word (or even a single letter) with something else. You need to go to the keyboard settings to define your own AutoText shortcuts. You can use AutoText for many things:
- replace "u" by "you", or "cu" by "see you later" for instance
- create a signature for your emails (you can even put carriage returns in an autotext)
- insert the current date, with the "%d" macro (see details below for available macros)
- correct common typos, for instance you can replace "food" by "good" (the dictionary algorithm will never do that automatically otherwise, as "food" is a valid word"). It can be seen as a way of removing words from the builtin dictionary. You can even set up a custom autotext to replace "lol" by "lol", which will prevent auto-correction of "lol" to "LOL".
edit: I thought you could use this in conjunction with Swype but this app is only for T9. It's misleading because this app has a function called "Swipe" where you swipe your fingers but this isn't to select letters; it's just to make a gesture that performs an action... honestly I went from a phone that was so archaic (military grade phone) to this phone so I've never even used T9 and will stick w/ swype...
