This behaviour I have observed with the Polish dictionary, but I'm assuming that it applies to other languages similarly.

I've noticed that the dictionary in Windows phone seems to ignore curse words. If I type them in, it never suggests them, even though the spellchecker doesn't mark them as typos (hence I can't add them to the dictionary). Is there any way to change this? I don't curse that much, but it's a nuisance nonetheless.

It looks like Microsoft forum and WPCentral forum both say that adding foul language to the dictionary is not currently possible.


One workaround is to use accented letters where there should be any. For example, replacing the u in F*ck with ū results in a word which can be added to the dictionary and will happily be suggested by the keyboard.
