Word length is the length of a word. There are two ways of measuring this; the number of letters in the word and the number of syllables in that word.

Note that words with variable spelling can have different lengths, e.g. encyclopedia is 12 but encyclopaedia is 13. Also, some words are varisyllabic words which have different numbers of syllables.
