I'm a notoriously bad texter, and autocorrect often exacerbates the problem, so this is such a fun article to read!
With these sorts of master lists in place—the corrections, the
exceptions, and the to-be-primly-ignored—the joists of autocorrect, then
still a subdomain of spell-check, were in place for the early releases
of Word. Microsoft's dominance at the time ensured that autocorrect
became globally ubiquitous, along with some of its idiosyncrasies. By
the early 2000s, European bureaucrats would begin to notice what came to
be called the Cupertino effect, whereby the word cooperation (bizarrely included only in hyphenated form in the standard Word dictionary) would be marked wrong, with a suggested change to Cupertino.
There are thus many instances where one parliamentary back-bencher or
another longs for increased Cupertino between nations. Since then,
linguists have adopted the word cupertino as a term of art for such trapdoors that have been assimilated into the language...Autocorrect has become an index of the most popular way to spell and order certain words.
