This is great, thanks.

Makes sense but I just wondered how I can put the "just" in there.

In English, just is kind of a junk word. But I am trying to emphasize that I "just" discovered this, meaning very recently. Is there a word in Turkish like this?

 

"Only" is another one in English - I only discovered this yesterday.

To translate it as "only" is correct there but it is weird for me to think it that way because  "only" expresses "fewness" in English but "daha" expresses "muchness" in Turkish.

I think you (plural) use "only" in that sentence to express that so little time has passed since the action took place. So you emphasise the fewness of time but on the contorary we use "daha" in the Turkish version of that sentence to express that it is so new. The thing we want to emphasise is the muchness of the action´s being new  It is like saying it has happened very new
