Definition 1:

To agree.

"Word" comes from the english saying "my word" which in turn comes from "I give you my word". Meaning that a statement is right and you would be willing to put your honor on the line to back it up.

Definition 2:

To question.

Once again, this comes from "my word". When one says "word" as if asking a question, he or she is asking if the person that made the statement would swear to it.
Example 1:

Person 1: "Man having chapped lips is annoying."
Person 2: "Word." (meaning I agree and I would swear to it)

Example 2:

person 1: "I had corn for dinner last night!"
Person 2: "Word?!" (meaing would you swear by it)

In some religious masses (e.g. Roman Catholic), a section from the gospel is spoken aloud to the parish. At the conclusion of the scripture reading a chant is started by the priest. He says ‘The word of the lord’ and the congregation responds ‘thanks be to god’. The expression “word” is a truncation of that phrase and it is said in agreement to a statement – a statement that bears some resemblance to gospel. It is intended to elevate the previously said phrase to a higher standard of truth.

Related Expressions: “Peace” – also from Christian mass the phrase “Peace be with you” is exchanged between parishioners following the Our Father.
John: “She got some fine titties”

Response: “word” (elevates John's statement to higher truth.)
