LR keeps adding keywords automatically that are irrelevant or confusing.  I would like to turn this function off.

Which version of Lightroom? I do not know any version that adds keywords automatically, but in Lightroom Classic you can apply a metadata or an import preset on import, and those presets can contain keywords that then also would be applied automatically.

Latest LR Classic on my iMac.  I understand your comment about presets.  Your comment just lead me to the answer.  I am receiving photos for a book.  If the photos have been processed in LR with keywords and presets by the other party, their keywords and data are added to my list when I import the photos.  Thank you.
