It sounds like an existential question to me.

I honestly can't tell the difference.

Tractor engineer, crop genetics engineer, construction-systems of farm equipment engineer, etc...

I initially was going to poke fun at the odd/unconventional comparison of the sentence, but your response is great, and brings to light the question of "well, they're actually not as mutually exclusive as one might initially believe..."

It sounds like fared nor for feirmeoir... I know my hearing isn't great, but m or n?
