Cognitive scientists, even outside cognitive linguistics,
Philologists, Ancient (and modern) historians, biologists and the
folks who occasionally chance upon a new species & have to find a
Greek or Latin name for it, ehhh, writers (and script-writers) trying
to make up a new language, ah, no they hire a linguist instead
