If someone creates an expression which is only meaningful to himself.  He has not created a language, or any part of a language.  He has only created a personal code.  It becomes a part of a language only when it is recognized as meaningful by enough people in a consistent way.  That is to say, it qualifies as part of a language only when it is recognizable by society: it has become part of social consciousness. 

It seems that you are still discussing linguistics in the Structuralist framework laid down by Saussure.  I'd suggest that you brush up your linguistic knowledge by reading a little Chomsky.
