look up any word, like rule of three:
 
40.
"word" originated from a gangsta' who at first said "word" as a sign of affirmation, however most other gangstas thought this was stupid, and they decided to keep it gangsta by popping a few caps in that nigga's ass.

these very gangstas then looked upon the original sayer of "word" as an idol, for having been shot.

forever after other gangstas used "word" as a "yes."
Gansta 1: Imma pop a cap!
Gansta 2: Word!

"Word" is the shortened form of the phrase: "my word is my bond" which was originated by inmates in U.S. prisons. The longer phrase was shortened to "word is bond" before becoming "word," which is most commonly used. It basically means "truth." Or "to speak the truth."
"Yo, I fucked twelve bitches last night."
"Word?" ("You speak the truth?")
"Word." ("I speak the truth.")

3.
A versatile declaration, originating (more or less) in hip-hop culture.

"Word" has no single meaning, but is used to convey a casual sense of affirmation, acknowledgement, agreement, or to indicate that something has impressed you favorably.

Its usage among young blacks has been parodied ad nauseam among clueless suburban whites.
"Come on, man, we're going to the store."
"Word."
