Great article, especially with the links to vocabularies! One thing that I’ve started using is thesaurus for finding synonyms to widely accepted words (e.g., either to find “shorter” (but still recognizable) word or, since English is not my native language, to maybe see if there is some more common word for what I’m trying to describe (mostly because of “brain freeze” moments :)).

Regarding scaling techniques, I’ve found that using Greek alphabet is somewhat more approachable and it looks “cooler”, e.g. primary > alpha, secondary > beta, tertiary > gamma, etc. Also, shorter words :)
