Originally deriving from the Bronx phrase "word up" (as heard in Cameo's 1990 hit of the same name), this Internet variation has taken storm in a similar fashion.

The contraction "word" was also heavily used, and the only real difference between the Bronx variant and the Internet one is its spelling.

1. Can be used as a greeting
2. Can be used as a positive response
3. Can be used as a confirmation request
