Help me create new words that are needed.

I am trying to assemble a list of words that need to be created. seeing as how there are so many words and languages we may be able to take some from another language.

I am in search of a word like exist to use on things(need a word for things that technically are not things) with no shape or location. im sure we have all heard that love,truth, hope, and many other concepts dont exist because they have no shape or location. some times you can say things occur but it seems a new word is needed. I will be adding many more examples over time as i have noticed a need for many new words but i just cant remember them all but i will.

feel free to post any ideas you have of words that need to be created or describe things that dont fit under any other word or definition.

i will add more as i have found myself writing "for lack of a better word" many many times while engaging in philosophical discussion. I feel that this could led to a breakthrough in many areas of philosophy as misunderstanding is a big problem in any explanation.

thanks and i cant believe this has not been done already. i have a feeling someone will know of someone that has done this already whos created words just haven't caught on.

Moral form, or moral reality works for me... Not real, so no truely a concept either...

Look at Heidegger... To express his thoughts on phenomenology he made up words or bent and borrowed words to suit his purpose... I guess I do too

@Doubt doubt,
While I am unsure about the ontological status of their existence, the term abstract concepts comes to mind.

@Doubt doubt,
I thought there was already a philosophical word for what you are looking for.

Emptiness.

All concepts are abstracts...

adeictic, is a linguistic term that covers it. the adeictic is that which has no definitve direction, place, location, definiteness, or time, all of which necessitate and unknowing of physical shape or feature.

Emotions may or may not express deixis. Deixis is comepletly user subjective.
