OK, so everyone knows that autocorrect can be annoying.

But the one thing more annoying than autocorrect is autocorrect that you can't delete.

On the iPhone, if you don't like the autocorrection, you can just backspace over it and type your original word again, and it won't autocorrect a second time.

On the Kindle Fire, no matter how many times I back up and retype my word, the Fire absolutely WILL NOT BELIEVE that I really want to type that word and not its correction.

How the flying $*%(*$)($ do you get the Fire to let you type your own word.

Maybe you just have to accept that your Fire knows best? :-). Really though, I think that you can turn it off, maybe even "train" it, but someone else will have to help.
Merry Christmas!
