Think of abstracts (not necessarily things you can't touch or see, just things that encompass more than one object; television would be a bad example, and valley / lowland / river would be a good example). Once you have a bunch of abstracts listed one at a time, think which ones would be linked. An easy link would be "mother" and "kind, gentle". Not all of them must be linked, but many will be. Just be very general. Then, when you make words from the VBRL (tm), combine different roots and radically alter them. I'm a novice giving people advice. It's the lame leading the blind....
