However, a historian may have a larger vocabulary than a linguist,
and both have larger vocabularies than a mathematician.
I'm not convinced this is true; in fact I'd be surprised if there were
any significant differences in vocabulary size by discipline. Has any
research been done on this?

OK, start counting, who has a larger vocabulary, Jesse Sheidlower or Daniel
Einstein or Plutarch?
