Autocorrect doesn’t know math

The autocorrect feature in Gmail has the unfortunate but hilarious habit of vigorously changing standard math terms into free-associative nonsense.  Here are some highlights (and I might add to this list from time to time):

  • “Igusa varieties” -> “Iguana varieties”
  • “Zariski topology” -> “Czarist topology”
  • “Gelfand spectrum” -> “Gelatin spectrum”
  • “cokernel” -> “cockerel” (my favorite so far)
