Definately after. It's an additional piece of information, but not part of the sentence.

Chad presumably means "definitely"

Pedontic presumably meant "pedontic." However, the word is really spelled "pedantic." Subtle. :)

My thoughts are that it'd depend on what you'd like to explain further. I'd say before the fullstop if you're explaining only the last word*. If the whole sentence needs extra information, then after.**
* Presumably you already know what words are.** This should give information about the whole sentence.
