Syntax for incrementing a numeric 'word'

I'm working on a simple script to identify and count the unique words dumped into a 'Source' field to create a 'Results' list field with the word and counter.
However, this script is throwing errors at the line when I attempt to increment the second word by adding 1 to it. What's wrong with the syntax for incrementing the counter chunk?
put empty into field "Results"
repeat for each word tWord in field "Source"
if field "Results" is empty then put tWord & tab & 1 after field "Results"
if tWord is among the words of field "Results" then
repeat for each line tLine in field "Results"
if word 1 of tLine <> tWord
then exit repeat
else add 1 to word 2 of line tLine in field "Results"
else put tWord & cr after field "Results"
