I have to be pedantic, but though a theory or model that is the most "parsimonious" will be the one that explains the most while positing the fewest extraneous assumptions, that doesn't mean that the meaning of "parsimonious" is "the simplest model/theory with the least assumptions and variables but with greatest explanatory power." The word is an adjective rather than a noun (the simplest theory" would be a thing, so the word for it would be a noun), and can apply to things other than theories. For example, one could be parsimonious with words, or parsimonious with money. "Parsimony" kinda describes the quality of being economical and sparing with some resource, whether that be ad hoc assumptions embedded in a theory/model/hypothesis, or anything else.

hyperbole (noun)

(you might want to look up this word since you all seem to be French speakers and thus not familiar with it)

-- exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.

Pulchritude/pulchritudinous: beauty/beautiful

It really doesn't sound like what it means, does it

I think "pulchritudinous" and I think of a corpse that's all bloated with gases and melty from being in the river too long

Then again I think of that whenever someone shows me a Rorschach blot, so

you're right, of course. i was trying to make it take a certain context which was difficult because none of the definitions seemed very good because it was all about being miserly/stingy, which wasn't the context i was going for

things to remember: suffixes

-ous means "full of, or possessing"
-mony refers to "status/role or quality"

suffixes are endings of words and they modify the part of the speech. for instance, the word vigor is a noun because it's thing but if you add -ous, the word is an adjective rather an a noun so the meaning has changed, you see. before it was a thing (noun) but now it's not. but all words ending in -ous do not follow this rule like in words enormous and fabulous. i'm not trying to be pedantic, but i can't help it.
