My word (7)

Ross

I think it could be either:

promise

by jove

'my word' is the definition.
(to give someone your word is to make a promise)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for promise that I've seen before include "Assurance" , "Cause for hope" , "Oath" , "Verbal or other commitment of one person to another" , "Vow" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
