This is the whole problem with the root system as it stands. The roots you have chosen are not the most commonly needed 180 for making compounds, but an arbitrary set that makes it hard to make up needed words. I suggest looking at some of the other philosophical language projects to get a feel for the categories they've made. Some of them are awful, to be sure, but you'll find some very efficient and compact ones as well.
