    So I keep seeing these posts where its said that the dictionary doesn't learn new words and suggestions for workarounds using contacts, etc. Well this morning I was typing, I can't remember what but a word kept getting a replacement, so I tapped the replacement to remove it then after about the third time the replacement word didn't appear, instead just the word I typed underlined in red. I thought maybe I was dreaming but then I was typing another word, I can't remember what and Twerppoet name appeared in it's place! Have I missed something here because the dictionary is definitely learning which I thought it couldn't?

    Oh, and Twerppoet, I'm not stalking you although maybe my iPad is trying to tell me that I need your help.......which I probably do!

    aw heck! I'm going to need a dictionary now!

    To do more than duty requires but my dictionary doesn't have supererogation, just supererogative.

    Yeah, jump on the bandwagon Tim!

    I'm assuming it's benevolence - to be kind or nice? Vald - ?

    Tried a nonsense word ,kept re typing it and then after 3 tries and a red line started a new sentence.
    Yes my nonsense word came up.
    Think I can start a new language.
    Any suggestions perhaps twerpish......?

    Yes - the iPad dictionary does learn and you can reset it in the 'Settings' menu, though not selectively, it's all or nothing.

    I wonder how I missed this thread?

    Just as well. My ego doesn't need to get any bigger. ;)

    Thanks for the big words. I had to look one of them up, which kind of disproves the omniscience. Missing the thread for over a year brings supererogation into question as well. :D


    If you are wondering how I finally got here, well that's another minor fault. I'm just vain enough to occasionally (once or twice a year) do a Google search for my name and/or often used nicknames. This was the seventh result for 'twerppoet'.
