How to delete words from the 'suggested' list in iPhone

How can we delete words from the "suggested" word list in our iPhone 6.  It seem that whatever word we mistype is saved in this suggestion list.  So when we type something close to the spelling, it displays it.

How can we delete those words from the "list" (note that we are not referencing the Setup >>General >> Keyboard >> Predictive or Character Preview)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are the mistyped words listed in here?  If they are you can Edit and delete them.

Let me know if that helps or not.

The mistyped words are not there.  The words we want to delete are words that we mistype randomly that for some reason they stay in memory.  For example, un Viber, Line, WeChat, Skype, we type Goingxxxxxxxccc and send it, the next we type goongxxx, "goingxxxxxxxcccc" is suggested (we have included an example in SKYPE)

Try this  

Reset your keyboard dictionary which starts over fresh.

You do this by going to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Keyboard Dictionary.

I find that doing this every few months helps.
