Christopher Bessler :

Try deleting the file from your ~/library/preferences.
then restart word

Christopher Bessler :

If that doesn't work, I would create a new User in System Preferences and see if Word opens there without problems. If yes, then it's a problem in your User's folder. If not, Try reinstalling the last big combo update from Apple. It's possible that you will have to do an "Archive & Install" to repair your system files.
