"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.")

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.

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.)
