Default How do Microsoft Office and Microsoft Word relate?

I'm trying to clean up my C: drive by uninstalling applications I don't use.
I want to uninstall Microsoft Office but don't want it to affect Microsoft
Word. I use Word often. How do Office and Word relate? Is Word a part of
Office? Slightly confused...
Thank you.

Word is part of Office (it's also possible to buy just Word by itself, but
that's not what you have).

In the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs dialog, click the Office item and
select the Change button. In the dialog that appears, uncheck any of the
Office programs you don't want (Access, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) but leave
Word checked. Then click the Update button. The unchecked programs will be
removed but Word will stay in place.

The way to approach this is to uninstall the lot, then reinstall Word. The
critical Office elements will be reinstalled automatically.

Office provides various shared components used by all the Office
applications, so you need at least some of it for Word to work. If you're
technically minded, switch to VBA, display the Object Browser, and see what
the Office library contains -- the menu functionality, amongst other things.
