iOS Autocorrect oddity
Posted by: ztirffritz

My phone has decided that the word 'good' doesn't exist. Any time I type 'good' autocorrect changes it to 'hood'. If I highlight the word to change it, it gives weird options like 'food', 'goid', 'gold' etc. It adamantly refuses to acknowledge the existence of 'good'. How do I correct this? I was under the impression that it would fix itself eventually after I corrected it manually enough times, but it persists. I rarely intentionally type the word 'hood'. I initially thought that the problem was that I typing it wrong repeatedly but I've started to pay attention and indeed, I've typed 'good' and as soon as I add a space autocorrect 'fixes' it to 'hood'.

That’s weird...
Some years ago I misspelled one word on purpose many times. Part of a joke I think.
Now I can’t get rid of the misspelling on Autocorrect (although I think it’s only on Messages).
I’ll be paying attention for any help you get.
So good luck!

Have you checked your list of text replacements, and your selected language/region? I can't imagine why it would be the answer, but could be worth checking... Settings -- General -- Language & Region, and Settings -- General -- Keyboard -- Text Replacement.

Feelin' better now that we're through
Feelin' better, 'cause I'm over you
I learned my lesson, it left a scar
Now I see how you really are
You're no good
You're no good
You're no good
Baby, you're no good
I'm gonna say it again
You're no good
You're no good
You're no good
Baby, you're no good
I broke a heart that's gentle and true
Well, I broke a heart over someone like you
I'll beg his forgiveness on bended knee
I wouldn't blame him if he said to me
You're no good
You're no good
You're no good
Baby, you're no good
I'm gonna say it again
You're no good
You're no good
You're no good
Baby, you're no good
I'm tellin' you now, baby
And I'm going my way
Forget about you, baby
'Cause I'm leavin' to stay

My guess is you accidentally selected to change 'good' to 'hood' once and it made that permanent.

The only entry in Text replacement is '@@' which I use to enter my email address.

My iPod decided the only correct way to spell my name was with two capital letters: ever time I type Mike, it would change it to MIke. It wasn't in Text Replacement and I added a text replacement to force it back to Mike, but that didn't work. I spent a long time trying to figure out how to edit that on-the-fly dictionary and finally I used Reset All Settings, which did the trick.

I have an instance like this, but it’s funnier. ONCE I typed epidiomoorchitis (UGH now that’s twice) and it is constantly offering to change everything remotely similar to that. It was funny because I had a patient who had that and there was no space/dash, so my brain pronounced it with the MOO in there. But I don’t want to type about it anymore. Usually I’m typing "epidemic" or "epinephrine", and I mean those, thanks. When I type something that is spelled correctly and is not even a proper noun, I don’t understand why it wants to correct me. Like your good=hood example.

If I say “hyphen”, while at least it doesn’t insert “iPhone” like it used to, sometimes it put in a dash instead...and spells it out! (ie “dash”)

Thanks, Siri.
