No one has mentioned the word miser so far. Does it mean this word differs from previously mentioned words? Do other words involve the meaning; hoarding money but looking like the poor just as the word miser does?

Yes. You can harden the G to make the word 'dinghy' (a kind of boat) - but that's a whole different word (and a whole different word class).
