There are a few things on my phone's autocorrect that annoy me. I'm bringing this up because I've got nothing to blog about, and I just noticed one of them.
As a writer, I was heavily influenced by George Orwell and Lewis Carroll. By that, I mean I make up a lot of words. I also get a bit of it from Joss Whedon. I love making newspeak constructions of words that lean just slightly closer to the mark than the real words available, I love throwing 'ish' or '-y' on the end of words where they don't belong (questionish, empiricismy, existentialism-flavored...) and I love making up entirely new words that just sound like they mean what I want them to.
Autocorrect disapproves of this gung-ho attitude towards word choice.
The worst thing about it on Android autocorrect is that it demands that you save the new word as a permanent word, or it forces you to autocorrect to the first suggestion. There's no way to write something wrong 'just this once.'
Who the hell writes like that? Who the hell doesn't occasionally need to write a word they intend to never write again in their lives?
