What is the meaning of :

2) I am going to have a word with you later.
(I know speaker means 'I am going to talk to you later. I would like to know whether it is a proper English in right grammar.)
Tks / ju
(Note: just because more than one word is involved, don't confuse this with another expression - 'have words with'. When you 'have words with' someone, you have an argument.
So Tom might say to Dick 'Harry's really getting on my nerves. If he does that again, I swear we're going to have words.'
And the conciliatory Tom might say: 'Harry means well. He probably doesn't even realize how irritating you find him. Leave it to me - I'll have a word with him.'
I hope that's not too confusing. )
