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.
