Morgul-knives and Lesser Wraiths Can't Post

I'm posting this in Main because it could appy equally to the Reading Forum, the LotR Movie Forum or TH Movie Forum.

Since the victims of the Morgul-blades of the Nazgul can become lesser Wraiths if they are not healed, what would these creatures be called in the Black Speech? Tolkien gave very few examples of the Black Speech beyond the inscription found on the One Ring? I am unaware of a B.S. term that indicates a diminuative form (as in lesser), so perhaps one of the following would suffice: Snaggul (slave-wraith) or Krimpgul (bound-wraith). I kind of like the first for the unintentional pun. If there is a Sindarin word for Wraith then I am unaware of it.
