How bind "Super" key *all by itself* to a function?

I'm on a Linux machine and would like to bind
the "Super" key all by itself to a function of my choosing.

This works for Super + "b":

(global-set-key (kbd "s-b") 'backward-word) 

However, how would you do something similar for ONLY the Super key

I tried (global-set-key (kbd "s") 'backward-word)
but then all I'm doing is rebinding the literal "s" which isn't my intention.

(I want to bind another function besides backward-word but that's just a
hypothetical example.)

(I asked a similar question on a list regarding the converting the Windows key 
to a meta key which led to special problems I'm hoping to avoid now by NOT 
trying to make Super a meta key.)
