    my mums phone (about a year old moto G and the exact same model as mine and ive never had this problem) keeps suggesting really weird words on autocorrect suddenly when she texts and only when she is texting. it keeps suggesting random unrelated words like fomentation, parvo virus, opprobrious, and tagboard. the words are often medically themed, and pop up as suggestions but wont disappear, refusing to go away unless she selects the correction. she keeps accidentally sending them to people too. we find it really funny but its also kind of worrying.
    this ever happen to anyone else?

    cant find anything like this online.

    anyone know why this is happening?

    thanks

    no, shes showed me it and she just types a letter in and the words pop up. it stopped when i tried to be fair, but then she tried again and it had stopped for her too. i have no idea how someone could make their phone do that bye accident
