> Something like "wack", "tracked", "ackent" don't have obvious english language interpretations

I disagree.  While _wack_ (not an adjective!) and _tracked_ (only implies action tangentially) are indeed poor choices, _ackent_ belongs to a family of English adjectives ending with **ent** wherein **ent** implies action related to the suffixed part of the word:

- astringent
- indulgent
- pestilent
- propellent
- prurient
- quiescent
- somnolent
- truculent
- urgent

**Ackent**: causing ACKs.  Sounds logical and English to me.
