Apple’s iOS 7 maintains a user dictionary of the words your iPhone learns after you reject an auto-correction suggestion. The iPhone trusts your judgment in such cases, so if you reject a suggestion in lieu of a misspelling or an inappropriate word, that word goes into your dictionary without question or prompting. You can remove these learned words, but it's an all-or-nothing endeavor that resets your entire user dictionary.
Press the "Home" button on your iPhone to return to the main screen.
Tap "Settings," select "General," and then tap "Reset" to access the iPhone's reset options.
Tap "Reset Keyboard Dictionary," and then tap "Reset Dictionary" to remove all learned words from your iPhone.
