Under Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> ENGLISH, turn Predictive on (or toggle it off and on again, if it's already on).

(Aside to tacit: I suspect you already know this, but on that same screen under ALL KEYBOARDS, you can turn Auto-Correction off.)

There should be a short white line in a thin grey stripe just above the keyboard. Touch it and swipe up to make the word suggestions appear. Swipe down to make them disappear.

I can help. It's not obvious, but:

1.) Pretend you are going to send a new text message, or go to an old sent one.
2.) Tap in the text entry box.
3.) Click and HOLD on the emoji (smiley face) key
4.) In the pop-up menu that appears, turn on "Predictive"

Voilá! smile

1) Start with middle anticipated word, always The:

The fact I can see it as an excuse for the next few weeks of school...

2) Type first letter and keep using middle anticipated word:

What is your name on my way home from work to be in my head...

The examples above seem to use prior two words to guess at the next.

3) Type first two letters in each word and use the middle anticipated word:

Four score and seven years ago. / For school and see he agreed.

This one is interesting, is it trying to make a sentence or just guessing at each word? It switched the ye to he.

Great—and interesting—experiment!

It could be doing all of that. In the case of "ye" to "he" it might have been anticipating a typo: "y" is just above "h" on the keyboard and "he" is a common word. That is more likely than making a sentence since "ye" could have been a typo for the beginning of "you", which would still make a sensible sentence.

From what I have seen, I would agree with you on the prior words used to suggest the next one.

Same sentence, third predictive choice for 'ye'

Four score and seven years ago:
For school and see yeah again.

So, if the word 'school' is high on the predictive list, let's see if it knows history:
Four score and s [here is where it recognizes it]

What it did not do is figure out that I typed the same phrase many times and it did not 'learn' it. Not surprising, it's very familiar with 'school.'

At a certain point it loops, first predictive choice:

The only one who is the best thing ever is when you get to see you in the world to me and my mom is so much fun and I have to be a good day to be a good time to get a new one is a great day to be a good day to be a little bit of a new one is a great day to be a good day to be a little bit of a new one...

See the new update is so much better than the original version.

There. You next Ira, start with one letter and use only anticipated words that come up.

Started with "F" and somewhat appropriately produced the following:

"First time since the beginning of the day before the game is on."

Love it when you are the only one.

Like the way I am so excited to see you.

Love the fact that I can be used.

Let's go nuclear—start with "Z".

Zip up and get it together.

Zero stars, but the only thing that could have been the most beautiful and amazing day with the same thing as the first time!

Wow! The depth of meaning in that last one will require some deep introspection. wink [the preceding sentence was not written by predictive typing, just to clarify]

Zombies are so much better.

Zero tolerance for the next two years.

Zero in on the way you are a little too much of a good time.

And the rest of the best thing ever is the only way to go out.

Can a moderator pick up this string at 36573 and start a new topic?
Good one!

B

By then it would be great to see you soon.

But it was not immediately clear whether the government of the day before, I have no clue.

But it was a great way to go to sleep and I'm still not sure how to get a job.
