Default Removing words from default dictionary on Samsung Galaxy S4

The "Google keyboard" on my Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.2.2 has loads of words in its default dictionary that Iíll never use (I canít imagine ever wanting to write cadmium, camion, or Caslon for example, and I donít even know what the last 2 mean). Is there any way I can delete unwanted words from the default dictionary to reduce the number of suggestions it gives me when using predictive text?

Many thanks
Gaz

I do not think you can remove words from predictive text. What happens over time when you use your keyboard the words you need get on the prediction board and highlighted because you have used them so much. The predictive text is pretty good but not at first because it has to be adapted to you.

Another solution which I really recommend is Swift Key keyboard from the market! Prediction is awesome and plus it has a ton of goodies.
