In the linguistic sense, a word is a unit of speech or writing that symbolizes or communicates a meaning. A word may consist of one or more morphemes.

In the beginning there was the Word

In the beginning there was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God

In den beginne was het Woord en het Woord was bij God en het Woord was God.

EN el principio era el Verbo, y el Verbo era con Dios, y el Verbo era Dios.
