    My EVO 3d keeps correcting my typos to "real words" that no one ever uses. The main offender is correcting to "Git" rather than "Got."

    It makes me sound challenged because I keep saying "I just git home" or "you git it!"

    Is "git" even a real word? I mean, shouldn't spell check correct to "get" anyway? I checked to see if I accidentally saved it in the user dictionary (done that with a few typos) but it wasn't in there.

    So basically, how to I delete an actual, real, in-the-dictionary word from the auto-correct so it will stop making me sound like an idiot?

    Good lord, I want to know this too. Apparently Swype thinks "stol" is the logical conclusion when tracing over S, T, I, and circling around L.

    I want to know if there is a way to edit the default Dictionary on my EVO 3D. I am running 4.0.3 with sense ver. 3.6. I know how to edit my User Dictionary, but there are words that really bug me, like when I fat finger the n and get "AMD" instead of "and". I just want to edit the dictionary without having to replace my keyboard. I don't use Swype, and don't really want to. Anyone know where the file is located, or how to edit it? Thanks
