If you look closely, it is defining のこと nokoto, not ことば kotoba. I've reported it, I hope others will, too.
Clicking on the こ or と seems to make the AI think the word is のこと or at least that is what the hint says (it is combined with the の from この just before it) but clicking on the ば it correctly says that the word is ことば and means "word"
What is the meaning of this? Word!

Tango means vocabulary (vocabulary). When I was studying Japanese in high school we had a tango notebook for writing all the new vocab we had learnt in class.
単語 is simply one word, 言葉 could be a phrase. I think 単語 is more formal though
単語 literally means "single word." 言葉 is less restrictive: everything from "expression" to "language"—including "language of the contract," meaning "wording."
I hear this as ”このことばのいみいはなんですか？”. Is it normal?
What nobody for "What's the meaning of this word?" Now that's a solid blow against Duolingo's brand of translationese!
FWIW One way to say "How do you say X in Japanese?" Is
Is "What does mean this word" wrong?
