32bit word

what exactly is meant by word ? The size of the header length is 4 bits, how does that correlate to the word ? Thank you in advance.
Word size is the "natural size" of data in a processor, and is usually the smallest piece of data the processor can fetch from memory.
Byte: Today, a byte is almost always 8 bit. However, that wasn't always the case and Or make it precise by saying word, word.
