    My selected language is english. Recently I had reason to type an email in german, and the spellchecker kept changing what I typed to something that looked remotely like what it imagined to be english words. Painful typing!
    In desperation I changed the language preference to german and this worked like a dream.
    Later I changed the preference back to english, but now the spellchecker persists in changing my english words back to something resembling german. The language preference is now definitely set to english, but the spellchecker doesn't seem to notice.
    How can I bring it back to its original sane behaviour?

    Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand anytime. Often using the search feature (in the toolbar at the top of every page) will lead you to the answers you're looking for. If not, feel free to post a question in the appropriate area.

    Please take a moment to view the information linked below my signature to get the most out of your iPad as well as our forum.

    With regard to your question, you can reset the spell check dictionary to the factory default. Open Settings > General > Reset > Reset keyboard Dictionary

    BTW, I moved your post to the iPad Help area where others can benefit from your question.
