Bizarre autocomplete problems
Recently I've been having some odd problems with my iPad's autocomplete feature when I use the on-screen keyboard (on English and Spanish keyboard settings). Certain little words are expanded into longer words/names, like these:
El > Nelson
La > Nula
I > PIRAHA (just like that, in all caps)
It > Pit
In > Pin
Sometimes it alters correctly spelled words into others, such as fish > dish and were > we're.
If I type the first few letters of a long word (correctly), it sometimes autocompletes it as a misspelling, like "psycholignuistics" or "osycholing" for "psycholinguistics."
Worse, it's apparently decided that "thr" is a word and doesn't correct it to "the" as it should-- and it even sometimes changes "the" to "thr"! Same thing happens with "br" for "be."
Is there anything I can do about this, or do I just need to type more carefully?
