Now, if you have ever programmed in low-level, you would know that a word is a size given to a data, 1 byte, 2 byte etc. So the size of the register in CPU is a word; pre-defined size, doesn't matter 8-bit 16-bit or what. The size is number, thus, a number is word.
Now a word in our language, for example, "Hello", cannot be represented as a word in computer which needs some other type, which is string (array of characters), thus a word is a string. From here comes the metaphor,
In programming, a number is a word and a word is a string.
