at the turn of the 20th century, the missionary inventors trying for a siamese typewriter simply lopped off two letters of the siamese alphabet, like cinderella's stepsisters severing the offending toe to make the foot fit the slipper

in 1951, typesetter zhang jiying shattered speed records by arranging characters in associative clusters, which he called lianchuan - 'chain' or 'free-association', later adopted as the term for what is now called predictive text
