Bag-of-words is a simplified natural language processing concept.  Text documents are parsed and output as collections of words (i.e. stripped of punctuation, etc.).  In the bag-of-words concept, the resulting collection of words is considered for further analytics without regard to order, grammar, etc.  (but the multiple occurrence of words is tracked).
