Not sure if theres a better way of doing this but

$string = "bob sam cat bob"; // the input text
$temp = explode(" ", $string); // create an array with every word
$temp2 = array_unique($temp); // remove duplicates from the array
$string2=implode(" ", $temp2); // form the array back in to a string

$string2 wouldnt have any duplicates

A function for what I just mentioned

function foo($strText) {
$temp = explode(" ", $strText); // create an array with every word
$temp2 = array_unique($temp); // remove duplicates from the array
return implode(" ", $temp2); // form the array back in to a string
}
