I'm going to assume this is a game that is played on an iphone or some such gadget that is like a smart phone (which is seriously flawed in name) and that in addition the gadget has a app specifically tailored to doing the auto correct.

So given that I don't have that gadget, and I don't have that app, my only experience with auto correct, is within my emails, which I've turned off because my auto correct thinks it is 22 years old and doesn't jive with my 56 year old attitude. Yes, I said, "jive".

I imagine when someone figures out that auto correct is culturally-specific and age-specific, we'll get a better auto correct product. This would be similar to having GPS and choosing which voice you want, that sexy australian female or the casanova de parmesan.

So enjoy your game but I have no idea what you are talking about.

Well, yes, that's why it says "tap on your phone" and includes a picture for clarity.

Most auto-correct apps allow you to add and remove words and over time, they learn your writing patterns, so they start to anticipate what the next word or phrase might be.

Obviously almost no one is getting this game. Maybe a mod could delete the thread.

Well, no no no, sometimes we learn as much from 'not getting it' as much as 'I get that'. So sometimes we learn from our failures as much as our successes, every problem or issue is just an opportunity!

This isn't meant to be a learning experience. It's not a very good joke if you have to explain it.

I'm too, GG. Are we supposed to use a smarty-pants phone to create the sentence, or do we just imagine what an auto-correct function would toss up on the screen for our entertainment/annoyance?


Auto-correct has been disappeared from my devices, but my brain can form confusing sentences/phrases at will. Just ask Himself.

I still like the term, "auto-cucumber".

And I have removed auto-correct from every device I have. And I'm usually an obsessive proofreader, which helps.

I will re-read your directions, GG, but this all makes for interesting discussion.
