Is there any term used to describe a person who is extremely parsimonious in modern English?
Well, you could always call them a scrooge. It's term from Dicken's "A Christmas Carol", in which the main character is a highly parsimonious businessman named Ebenezer Scrooge.
Skinflint, tightwad, miser.
Separate names with a comma.
