What does Word Mean in Texting?

In texting, “word” is used as a phrase for when you agree with someone. It is basically a way of saying “well said”. You are giving credit to the other person and basically saying that they are telling the truth.

This phrase is shortened, the full one is “word is bond”, and it also means that a person is truthful. With time it was shortened to just “word” and now it is used everywhere, especially in texting. You can use it as well when you want to agree with someone and don’t have time to write a long message.

It can also be used with a question mark at the end – “word?”. This is a way of making sure what someone said is the truth, but it doesn’t necessarily need an answer.

Alternative Meanings

It can also mean a few other things, but it would be rare to see them used this way…

  • A greeting (what’s up)
