No matter what I do, as soon as I type anything in any word document, the font will switch to Times New Roman.
I can select existing text, chose any font and it will change to that font. But as soon as I type something, that newly typed text will again be in Times New Roman. (Existing text remains unaffected, I can type right in the middle of a word and the new letters will be Times New Roman, while the letters before and after remain whater font was selected before.)
And the problem goes away when I switch to an English keyboard layout. This is not a solution of course, but might help in narrowing down the issue.
The paragraph style I have selected is Normal and the font for this style is Calibri (Body).
Here is a video of the problem:
I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled Office, to no avail.
I tried searching online, but I could only find plenty of people who are asking how to configure a default font or how to change fonts, but nothing related to my problem. It might be buried somewhere under all the unrelated search results, though.

I have had this problem for a while now (the video is of an older build (1804 / 9226.2114)) I am actually not sure when it first occurred, as I use Word only a few times a year.
This question seems somewhat relevant, as I am using a German keyboard layout on an English OS and English Office, but it's about Word 2011 on Mac. The "Match font with keyboard" option mentioned in this answer doesn't seem to exist in my version of Word.
This question describes the same problem, however unlike the OP in that question, my "Normal" template does not contain
(Intl) Times New Roman under Font. Instead it simply looks like this:
Font: (Default) +Body (Calibri), Left
Line spacing: Multiple 1,08 li, Space
After: 8 pt, Widow/Orphan control, Style: Show in the Styles gallery
Some further information that might help narrow down this problem:
