    I've been using swype for a few months now, and I have noticed it will fight me tooth and nail when I input certain four letter obscenities...specifically those that start with s and f. They are all entered into the dictionary (I pressed '+' when I first typed them in), but the damn thing refuses to swype them out. Anyone else have this issue?

    Nope. My GS2 swears like a sailor when I want it to.

    Just add the word and it'll work

    Just got to teach it. I type out the word, click it, Add to dictionary, and it does the rest.

    mine says it learns the words... over and over again and never holds bad words in memory. it will not let me say these "bad words" no matter what i do. big brother censorship. if someone knows how to get swype to spell out WTF equivalents, please let me know how.

    Mine won't let me say f-ing. It has learned the s word no problem. Just the four letter f word. But when I try to put the -ing on the end, it comes out "ducking." I have to go back and change the D to an F. It is in the dictionary! But it will NEVER swype that word.

    What's bad is, my exhusband's nickname was Duck. When i tried to swype Duck, it would put the F word. LOL

    Ok, so I tried everything from adding things to my personal dictionary to trying to figure out how to add them under swipe settings>my words>edit my dictionary but I couldn't seem to get anything to work. But I figured it out!! From your home screen go to settings>my device>language and input> then select the cog next to swipe>my words then check mark cellular data, contribute usage data, and living language. After that, go into your messaging and type in your favorite four letter word, hit space and in the suggestions box "add **** to dictionary will pop up and you just add. Remember, it is case sensitive so I just made sure it learned them in lower case so it wouldn't capitalize it every time. Thanks for the tips from you guys, I wouldn't have been able to work my way to the solution without you!!

    Why the duck do you even need to swear...?

    This worked perfectly, thank you for letting me swear again, i f'ing love swearing :)

    And to the guy (or girl) that asked why someone even needed to swear... it's not really about needing it, but a right to. I would never swear at you, but my imaginary girlfriend likes to be verbally abused :)

    On the S5, all you have to do is disable offensive words on the input settings for your keyboard, and then add the words to your dictionary. Now I can type the word "ducking" correctly :)
