No.  It will append the string tWord after the chunk element specified 
in the target expression, "word 2 of me".

It may be clearer to consider lines:

   put "Something" after line 2 of tContainer

With that you wouldn't expect it to create a new line, but to add 
"Something" to the end of the specified line.

And so it is with other delimiters.

If you want to add a new chunk, you'll have to make that explicit:

   put tWord into word (the number of words of me + 1) of me
