Actually, they generally are abstract 'cause my brain doesn't sem to use words to procces ideas. Most of my thoughts are in a shape or form, If I think about science I think about it in a sort of shape. it's not something I can really describe.
As for words not associating... it's more like trying to translate a 4-d idea into a 3-d rough sketch.Possible, but you'd have to be more skilled than I am to do it.

Sounds like Orwell's 1984.
First they changed the vernacular of what people said. Then they refined and removed works to create Newspeak.
Control expression and you control thought is the basic principle.

Imagine you are sitting in a big busy restaurant having dinner. And you are sitting at the farthest table from the front door with your back to the door. Someone walks in and their energy is so strong that even though you don't see them walk in, you are compelled to turn around and look at that person. I speak four languages and none of them has a word for that. So your only recourse is either emote that wordless feeling through an artistic vehicle, or do like I did and spend a whole paragraph describing around it.
