There are number of words in English language than the average number of hair on a person's head. We do find the description of some feelings, acts or people difficult. It is then when explaining something, in a nutshell, becomes hard that we start feeling a strong need of one word instead of using long descriptions.
Languages other than English entirely solve this problem out.
