As far as I know word length has no real bearing on SEO, except that shorter terms can be more readily confused with other shorter terms, which may make getting page rank much more difficult.

Re: 3 letter domain

letter length has nothing to do with SEO.

You can rank for "Loans" in the top position with Loans.com or with IhaveAlotOfLoans.com

there are many more factors than length of domain, or the domain for that matter.

SEO aside, from my limited experience, domains with short length like within 3 to 15 characters tend to have higher natural type-in for the SAME OVT, than say domains longer than 20 characters. For latin names, adding a hyphen will also significantly reduce type-in. There are exceptions though. Not sure if others experience the same.
