Question Phone changes the spelling of words
As I post messages on facebook. my phone will change the spelling of almost every word.
Why does it do that and how do I stop it?

I don't know, but I've noticed the same thing. I think it's a 1984-esq deep state plot to reduce our allowed vocabulary (newspeak). It's ungood.

Mine does that too, even when I spell the words correctly it will change them. I think until it gets to know your usual vocabulary that happens. I try to be more careful and read my texts/posts before I post them from my phone.

I don't have a smart phone, but wouldn't you be able to turn off the "auto spell correction" (or whatever it's called) in the Settings of a smart phone?
