Have you ever accidently mistyped a word while manually entering letters on your Swype keyboard? If so, then you’re like 99.9% of the rest of us that use it. When you manually spell out a word, it will be added to Swype’s dictionary. This is done so that the word can be “Swyped” in later. But, Swype doesn’t know the difference between words entered purposefully, and typos. To fix this, we need to clear out the dictionary.
First, we need to go into the Settings application. You can launch this either the App Drawer, or by Pressing the menu button on the outside of your phone.
Once in settings, Tap Applications.
Tap Manage applications.
Now you’ll see a list of applications. At the top of the list, Tap All. Now Scroll Down the application list and Tap Swype.
Tap the Clear data button and then Tap OK on the Delete confirmation window that pops up.
Now your Swype dictionary should be reset back to what it was when you installed it. All of the custom words you entered, whether on purpose or by mistake, should now be cleared.
