Frequently, when trying to use the "?" shortcut (m-spacebar) I will Swype across the period key. This assumes I want an abbreviation and populates m.p.h. ... I deleted that abbreviation and now get M.D., N.Y. or M.B.A.

I suggest you edit the algorithm such that Swype ignores the periods in these words i.e. for M.D." Swype m-d but not m-.d-.
