I dont know the answer to this, does anyone? I was typing a text to my girlfriend earlier and wanted to say my back was sore, when i did SORE it gave me ROSE and when I scrolled through it had 7 alternatives - POSE SORE PORE SORD ROSE ROPE POPE.
So I started thinking, what key combinations would give the mose different 4 letter words?

Give up, Sunshine

I don't think I'm amazing or anything, but predictive text just can't seem to handle my golden stream of consciousness.

She Of the Unfrozen Yellow Snow

or

Boffo, according to predictive text (and a vague mention in a Douglas Adams book)

Having written T-9 and predictive text generation software for a couple of phones, you will find different phones produce different results. It all depends on the dictionary Thumbs up

I hate predicted text. I once sent a message to my mom saying I was going to a riot (meant to text race) Embarassed

I was just typing a text involving the word ACRE and my phone went through the following 8 words - CASE CARE BASE CARD BARE BARD CAPE ACRE. Bizarrely that made me think of this thread, which I think I read over a year ago....

RIOT and RACE aren't even using the same keys... so no matter what you wouldn't have gotten race, right?

All I know is if I text 'fancy a pint'
first it says 'fancy a riot'
then it says 'fancy a shot'
So we normally start with shots then move onto pints.
