If you type a word the phone doesn't know it will say 'add to dictionary'. Just tap that and it will add it to the custom dictionary, providing you're using the stock keyboard.

How do I remove something from dictionary I added by mistake?

Solved: Language and input/(samsung keyboard settings)/predictive text/my word list.

you can get an app called "UDM" to manage android native dictionary.
