Hi Ana,

AArch64 is a 64-bit word size target, so the word size defined as 64 bits
is correct. See the quoted from wikipedia:

In computing <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computing>, *word* is a term for
the natural unit of data used by a particular
A word is basically a fixed-sized group of
digits<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numerical_digit> (binary
or decimal) that are handled as a unit by the instruction
set<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instruction_set> and/or
hardware of the processor. The number of digits in a word (the *word
size*, *word
width*, or *word length*) is an important characteristic of any specific
processor design or computer
