    Default Is there a way to remove this...

    So, I've mistyped "lol" enough times that "lok" is acceptable. Before my phone used to autocorrect it to "lol" but now "lok" just goes though. Trivial thing, i know. But I wanted to know if it's possible to remove "lok" as an acceptable word.

    You can also add an international keyboard and then it will open up the custom dictionary. Then you can add new words manually and cut down on stuff like this from happening.

    Yeah. As long as emoji is installed you'll have the option on whatever keyboard.

    I've seen this mentioned before but have never found where to add the new words.

    EDIT: when I added Chinese Traditional (Pinyin) it enables the custom dictionary. Not all international keyboards do though.
