Put "two" after word 1 of "word"

result: "wordtwo"

put "two" after word 2 of "word"

result: "wordtwo"

'after word' basically counts white space. eg, "word,word,word" is counted
as one word". "word                   word" with several spaces counts as
two words. "word         " still counts as one word. There is no word two
here so it will always append after the same as if it was 'after word 53'!

But when you use put x *after* word y of z *into* z, with z being "word", x
being "two" and y being 2, you are using after out of syntax because you
wouldn't use **after** and **into** in the same 'put' line
