    It's when you're not clever enough or too lazy to think of the right word for the situation, so you say "word" as in "insert proper word or phrase here".

    Different translations of the bible would suggest love and charity are synonmus. Examples found in.1st Corrinthians ch. 13 vs. 1-17 illustrate this many times. I would enjoy hearing from a scholar of the languages used in those past times to clarify my understanding. The story of the "World's Poorest Philanthropist", Gilbert "Harold" Ewing II (myself) is the reason for this querry. The " act of grace", or charity, reffered to in the news interview, has posited this question and I lack the sort of education to provide any insights of true value.

    "word" means what the person is saying is being understood in a good way. If it's a question ("word?") then that means "really?".

    It has a dual meaning because of the character of Jesus. Jesus is the living word. It also means the Bible as the word of God.

    It means that one person is verifying the statement of another as true. For instance, if I say, " Wow it's cold out here." and my friend says, "Word." He/She is verifying that it is indeed cold. And that is another lesson in "Talking Black." Tune in next week for the meaning of "Know wat I'm sayin."
