Example, the word "word" would work as it describes itself: a word.
Also called Homological, an Autological word is a word which expresses a property which it also possesses itself.
Conditionally autological words can sometimes describe themselves depending on the use, and in the context of this quiz those words count. An example would be the word "black", if typed in a black font, would count. Heterological words do not describe themselves, eg. "German" is not German.
Words are defined by the state they exist in at the beginning of the quiz, not after you select them.
