<b>Carroter</b> Carroter

Despite the obvious guess, a carroter is not what you think it is. No, it has nothing to do with the vegetable. A person with this title makes a living by increasing the quality and condition of furs for felt hats.
 

<b>Agronomist</b> Agronomist

An agronomist does not specialise in anger, but in the sustainable production of crops. Experiments are conducted by this expert to determine the best breeding patterns of a certain species to improve quality of the product. The solving of common crop problems also falls onto the shoulders of an agronomist.
 

<b>Amalgamator</b> Amalgamator

Contrary to the impression this job title makes, an amalgamator does not have a career based around action, weaponry or power. Far from it, an amalgamator is an individual who attends to the machinery that separates gold or silver from other rock matter.
 

<b>Seismologist</b> Seismologist

Seismologists study the patterns of earthquakes and observe movement along fault lines, through the use of various instruments. In researching such areas, seismologists can pin-point locations of potential earthquake risk.
 

<b>Nematologist</b>Nematologist

Someone who works as a nematologist studies the science of nematodes. But what exactly are they? Nematodes are parasites found in plants that attack plant cells, soil and insects. Therefore these scientists study the lives of these parasites, and how they interact with their victims.
 

<b>Otolaryngologist</b> Otolaryngologist

A common medical specialist, that many have visited, has a very long scientific title that is usually unknown to most. Normally known as an ENT or an Ears Nose and Throat doctor, this profession is also termed otolaryngologist.

<b>Aerial-photograph interpreter</b> Aerial-photograph interpreter

An aerial-photograph interpreter does exactly what the name implies, but for what purpose? These interpreters take note of details within photographs taken from a bird’s eye view for the military. Details such as resources, camouflaged campsites and terrain are all important aspects to take note of.
 

<b>Speech pathologist</b> Speech pathologist

A speech pathologist does not study communication per se, but aids in the improvement of communication. These specialists work with people who have a wide range of impairments that detrimentally affect their use of language.
