What's an Antonym for 'Grandiloquent'? Wait, My Dreaming Brain Will Tell Me

Last night, I had a dream wherein I had the realization, "The life of Abraham was like a big..." and then I couldn't remember the word. I spent the rest of the night, in my dream, frustratedly trying to remember the word "chiasmus." I couldn't remember it until I woke up and described it to my wife and she Googled it.

Now, I have to look into whether or not Abraham's life really was a big chiasmus. Or is this another example of my brain lying to me in my sleep, like when I dreamed about dinosaur anatomy or our ward member's testimony that he had overcome a gambling problem?
