Is your phone new or used ? Maybe check Keyboard Settings - More Typing Options and see if any shortcut words set up in there

@Kraig: Can you try heading to Settings > General Management > Samsung Keyboard Settings > Scroll to the bottom > About Samsung Keyboard > Tap the 'i' in the top right > Storage > Clear Cache > Clear Data. This will remove any personal settings from your keyboard, but should also stop any unwanted words being populated by Predictive text or Auto Replace.

have you set a screen lock with either a password, face, pin, fingerprint unlock? if not, someone may have been messing with your autocorrect when you weren't looking. e.g. your kids/work colleagues/mates
