So, to add the word "comments" you'll need to edit both index.php and single.php. Look for the following line:

<p class="date"><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> <?php comments_popup_link('§ <span class="commentcount">0</span>', '§ <span class="commentcount">1</span>', '§ <span class="commentcount">%</span>'); ?></p>

This snippet displays three comment states - if there are no comments, if there is one comment, and if there is more than one comment. You are interested in the bits inside the parenthesis of comments_popup_link() - in case you want to change this again in the future. For now, just replace that bit of code with the following:

<p class="date"><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> <?php comments_popup_link('§ <span class="commentcount">0 comments</span>', '§ <span class="commentcount">1 comment</span>', '§ <span class="commentcount">% comments</span>'); ?></p>

That should do it!
