I do not know what these words mean in regard to chord progression.

These words appear to be describing the emotional response, but the same chord progression could create all of those emotional responses, based upon the melody, key, and meter of the music.

Chord Progressions, I believe, should be described in harmonic terms, not emotional terms. For instance, the IV - I at the end of a piece, sometimes referred to as the 'Plagal Cadence' (Sub-dominant - Tonic) is more specific about what is happening.

I do not think it is your language skills which are not good. These words don't make sense for Chord Progressions. At least to me.

Yes, as Mike has said, whatever source these come from, they are not in fact very meaningful. Can you give a hint where you got these words from? (not a commercial link).

On the face of it they look like descriptions relating to a library music catalogue, e.g. tracks recorded for use in the background on radio, TV, videos etc.

I think those descriptions are provided by the manufacturer of the software.
Outside of his program, they are meaningless.
