word length : See bit depth.
sync word : At the end of every 80-bit SMPTE timecode word is a 16-bit sync word. The sync word provides direction and sync-lock speed information, and marks the end of each timecode word. The bits are: 0011 1111 1111 1101.
word : The smallest possible unit of digital audio; a single number (sample word) that represents the instantaneous amplitude of a sampled sound at a particular moment in time. See bit depth.
word clock : A signal internally by all digital audio devices, and externally for locking together high-end digital audio devices. Word clock is , accurate to a single sample word, usually 44.1kHz or 48kHz, i.e., the sampling rate.. Specialized hardware is required for syncing a digital audio recorderís word clock to SMPTE timecode or some other timing reference, usually through a BNC-type connector, rather than the XLR connector used by an AES/EBU null clock signal. .
