Emphasizers, and filler words?

Can someone help me with emphasizers and fillers?

Like Toch, Maar (like in Maar eens or maar wat), even, gewoon, hoor and such.

Can someone explain it like in English -up usually means fully/completely, for example:

I ate it up=I ate it fully

He tied me up=He tied me completely, like my hands and feet too

Made up=completely made (by someone)

Maybe it depends on the operating system or browser you are using. I do not have any problems on Firefox for Android 7.
Try:
Copy the text of the link, open a new window in your browser and paste the text.

Both links work for me in Firefox but I get an Error 404 page in IE. Copying the link does not help.

It doesn't work for me. Error 404 I am using Firefox on Linux. I see a lot of things going on in the background involving Google APIs and Amazon web services. It might be caused by some browser setting (E.G. I disabled third party cookies).

Could be browser settings but I have third party cookies disabled in FF and partially disabled in IE.
