    Is "samplifier" a typo?

    I am not a dictionary, but there are some very good ones out there. If when you've done your research something remains unclear, just ask.

    Hi,
    I don't think "samplifiers" exists, are you sure that it's not "simplifiers"?

    amplifier - Definitions from Dictionary.com - meaning 1. The 'thing' in this case is a word.

    emphasizer - a word that gives Emphasis - Information from Reference.com, like 'really', 'truly', 'absolutely', 'utterly'...

    downtoner - a word that tones another word down (Tone down - English Phrasal Verb - UsingEnglish.com ), like 'quite' (with gradable adjectives), 'fairly', 'to some extent', 'in a sense'.... (If in doubt, look for a phrasal verb )
