Self-hosted WordPress requires both PHP and MySQL to run and I doubt you will find any free hosting for it anymore.

If you just want to blog, then tomcahill's answer above is perfect...use wordpress.com and deal with the restrictions on themes and plugins.

If you want to learn how to use/develop for/hack WordPress then consider downloading WAMP or XAMPP (or MAMP if you are a Mac user) and installing it locally.  That will give you Apache/PHP/MySQL running locally and you can easily install WordPress and run it that way.

If you are looking to have a public site on WordPress inexpensively, then I would point you towards Dreamhost and other large shared hosting providers.  You can get a domain name and full hosting for around $9/month.

It's free.  Only $13 ayear for a custom domain.
