    "one word"

    "Politicians love powerful words. In today's People and Places you will hear about the importance of moving words in a political campaign. You will hear two Democrats, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. What one word is used by these candidates again and again?"

    hi there,
    please, what does the underlined expression mean?
    thanks

    Literally, what do the candidates utter? 'One word' that they keep saying.

    Re: "one word"

    Listen to the audio link at BBC World Service | Learning English | People and Places - that tells you what the word is (in this case).

    hi,
    I actually have already listened to it. it's a very nice lesson. I just got confused with the written expression ''one word''.
    thanks.
