Scroll down to Keyboards, then tap Text Replacement.

You can then create substitutions by typing in a phrase and a shortcut.

The abbreviation is what you personally type, and the phrase is what it turns into.

So keep the abbreviation short and the phrase as long as you like.

Make sure you choose abbreviations that are a bit obscure that you wouldn’t accidentally type in normal conversation.

If one becomes annoying or not very useful, you can always edit or delete it.
