How Swype handles the names on the Royals’ 40-man

Inspired by this Lookout Landing post, and my previous adventures with the Swype keyboard system on my phone, here is what Swype suggests when I type in Royals players’ names.

PITCHERS
Arguelles             Artists
Barerra                Careers
Crow                     Crore (wtf?)
Davies                  Favors
Hochevar           Buckwheat (LOL)
Jeffress                Here’s
Mazzaro              Macao
O’Sullivan           Occultism
Pucetas               Puck’s (no doubt influenced by my frequent texting about the Glee character)
Soria                     Spurious
Teaford                Teapots
Tejeda                  Regress (!!!!!)
Texiera                Records
Wood                     Wtf (seriously.)

CATCHERS
Pina                       Pounds

INFIELDERS
Aviles                   Acolytes
Betemit                Megabit
Getz                       Hertz (don’t it?)
Ka’aihue               Configure

OUTFIELDERS
Blanco                  Banco
Eibner                  Dinner
Francoeur           Franchisor

Swype already recognized these names:

Adcock, Chavez, Chen, Francis, Holland, Kendall, May, Pena, Bianchi, Butler, Escobar, Robinson, Cabrera, Cain, Dyson, Gordon, Lough, Maier, Ortiz

    Ha ha ha. I might need to do this.

    1. Minda Haas

      Go for it! Might as well have a blogger for every team do this!! :)

  2. Mark LaFlamme

    Brilliant! But what the hell is a ‘crore?’

    1. Minda Haas

      I have absolutely no idea! Google says it’s a number in the Indian numbering system, equivalent to ten million. Why is that in my phone?

      A thing I hate about Swype is that it suggests a lot of French words. To Swype the word ‘forgot,’ i have to slog through like five different stupid French words.

      I’m cool with it suggesting Spanish, because the phone is both English and Spanish. Not sure where all the French comes from, though.

  3. Mark LaFlamme

    Well, my name is French but spellcheck will invariably change it to “aflame.” I’m okay with that.

    1. Minda Haas

      Mark Aflame sounds so dramatic! Every second of Mark Aflame’s life is an adventure!

  4. Mark LaFlamme

    I laugh now, but wait until I accidentally set myself on fire. Have a feeling the irony will not soothe me.

  5. Venu Reddy

    Yeah, the Indian numbering system gets a little bizarre. You go from 10,000 to 1 lakh (equivalent to 100,000 – however you write it as 1,00,000) and then go to 10 lakhs (10,00,000) then to 1 crore (1,00,00,000) which as you pointed out is 10,000,000. The software was probably written, in part, by Indians, which is why it probably spits this out.

    Rolling Stone magazine in 2003 placed the album on their 500 greatest albums of all times list,
    and in the same year, VH1 called it the 57th greatest album
    of all time. The band announced their debut studio album, The Bones of What You Believe, which will be released
    on 23 September 2013 in the UK and on 24 September 2013 elsewhere
    – But as leaked out early today. With such a drastic changing scenario, one can use internet efficiently to
    download songs and use your pc as a database of all songs to
    enjoy them life-long.

    You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really one thing that I
    feel I might by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely huge for me.

    I am looking forward to your next post, I will attempt to get the dangle of
    it!

    Old autos like visions don’t merely fade away.
    It remains in your backyard, occupying space that is precious.
    You may not use it. Either it’s in such a beaten-up condition that it will not
    be unprofitable to buy a brand new one instead of having
    it fixed. Or it is such a gas guzzling machine that driving it is not economically viable.

    Perhaps you have brought a fresh one and decided to let the old one rest in peace.
    Nevertheless, the moot point is what you to do with it.
    Getting a buyer is well nigh impossible. And if by chance you find one, you do not have an inkling of the asking price.
    Before you give up, call in those who focus on unwanted auto removal
    in Melbourne.

    But it could be when you choose to remove your rubbish that you can really make money.
    Nevertheless they may have good parts still in them.
    For those who have old ones that you just do not
    enjoy any more, individuals will supply you with cash for cars.

    Automobile Removals doesn’t need to be complicated.
    For removing your unwanted vehicle, businesses who give cash for autos will bring their own trucks.

  18. domain history

    At present, a few companies have expressed their interest to ICANN with the majority wanting to take their business brand for a
    Top Level domain history, with the
    minority applying for generic terms. Regardless
    of which approach you use, it’s important to be careful not to register a domain name for a
    product that is already trademarked, as the trademark owner may be able to unilaterally confiscate your domain without compensation. STEP TWO:
    If your desired URL is available it will take you to a page where you can select more versions of
    the URL you chose.
