  Word (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, "word" is a term for the natural unit of data used by a particular computer design.
The number of bits in a word (the word size or word length) is an important characteristic of a computer architecture.
Some of the earliest computers were decimal rather than binary, typically having a word size of 10 or 12 decimal digits, and some early computers had no fixed word length at all.

 Integer (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computer science, the term integer is used to refer to any data type which can represent some subset of the mathematical integers.
The term word is used for a small group of bits which are handled simultaneously by processors of a particular architecture.
The 36-bit word length was common in the early days of computers, but word sizes that are not a multiple of 8 have vanished along with non-8-bit bytes.

 Computer science definition by The Linux Information Project
Computer science is the study of the storage, transformation and transfer of information.
Science is a technique for learning about the natural world by applying the principles of the scientific method (which includes making empirical observations, proposing hypotheses to explain those observations, and then testing those hypotheses); engineering is the application of science.
Computer science in universities was initially treated as a branch of mathematics and not as a separate discipline.

 Computer science - Simple English Wikipedia
Computer science left the other sciences near the end of the 20th century and made its own ways of doing things and its own group of word uses.
Computer science looks at the theoretical (not real) parts of computers.
Computer engineering looks at the real parts of computers (those that a person could touch), and software engineering looks at the use of computer programs and how to make them.
