Or as in "Ug" the universal first word uttered by a cave person.  Used to express the total sum of thought of the day.

Brought to you by "Cave persons unite we CAN do it"!

"We can do it!" ?  Are you talking about cave persons, or anthropomorphized construction equipment?

Yes, I have a two year old daughter.  I'm not entirely sure, but I think Hell might be spontaneously singing the Chuggington theme at a railroad crossing....

Short for "Word Up" which is Slang for "I agree". Example: "A mothers Job Never Ends

""Reply: "Word!"

Alternatly, if the reply is "Word"? (With the question mark...it mean "Oh Really?"

Example: "My brother'smusic was picked up by a major record label! "

Reply: "oh Word?"

Here in America, we have changed the way we speak "ENGLISH" slightly ... and our black community has further changed some english words.  One such word is "WORD".  When they say that they mean "TRUTH"  or  What I said is the TRUTH"  . heres another one.  Solid-Dollar.  One black man asked me for a Solid dollar!! what the heck is THAT?  Later i found out that is a Quarter of a dollar coin.  Heres another one.  a black friend asked me if i was "chillun"   I thought he asked if i was a "children"  but no... he was asking if i was "chilling-out" or being calm and cool.  My american "white" english is different from Englands English... just as the black community's english differs from "white" english. Watch the VIDEO that nachomama gave  a good example. word.

It's an interjection meaning, truth, truly, or strong agreement. It's sort of like the archaic word "amen", but without any of the religious connotations usually associated with "amen".
