5 steps for editing or deleting words in the Android dictionary
If you typed a word and accidentally saved it, you'll probably want to make a correction so it doesn't keep popping up.
When typing out words that the dictionary on your phone doesn't know, it's easy to add them by tapping on them, or selecting add. Unfortunately, there are times when even the words we add are still not the correct spelling or format that we want the words to appear in. Here are five easy steps for fixing or getting rid of words you added by mistake:

1. Open the global Settings area on your phone.
2. Choose Language & keyboard from the list.
