I use my predictive text all the time! Lets get this working for you again. When did you first notice this happening? When you type an email, do you see the words there? Please check the current version you are on by going to settings >> general >> about >> version.

Hi, excuse me if this is a dopey answer and you've already tried this, but this used to happen to me too until my daughter showed me what to do. 🙂  When you bring up the keyboard to type out a message, you should see a small white bar over the "t" and "y" keys, under the larger bar where your typed letters appear.  If you touch that bar and swipe up, the word suggestions should appear.  You can swipe back down from the word suggestions to make them disappear.
