When multiple people are participating in a group-messaging instance, keeping track of the various phrases that people use can be difficult; current auto-correct functionality often causes confusion and misunderstandings. Based on the language usage of the group, different words or non-words can have dramatically different meanings that current auto-correct solutions do not contain.

The novel solution is a user interface (UI) component for displaying a dynamic and contextual word auto-correct for use in real-time group messaging applications.

The component uses a cognitive agent to develop and analyze alternative naming in a group-messaging context. An initial name is determined from a group chat based on conversation monitoring and entity analysis. This name can change and evolve during the ongoing conversation. The UI element provides access to the various group-given spelling of the word and associates each of those with a common entity naming to produce a relationship. All of the items in the relationship can be shown in the UI element to allow the end users access to the correct or group-driven spelling. The cumulative users decide the most appropriate naming through auto-correct selection, and the resulting sequence appears in the other users' auto-correct UI updates.

The UI can show shortened or lengthened versions in the auto-correct UI. The UI output can be driven by the UI interaction of the other participants in the group. Simulation can occur based on a group of users' historic activity in abbreviating/shortening names to simulat...
