“Subject Matter Expert”

In the term “Subject Matter Expert” (SME), what does the qualifier “Subject Matter” mean? Are there experts without subject matter (other than perhaps Irwin Corey, the “World’s Foremost Authority”)



But I totally see his point

All experts are only expert in their subject matter.

it is kind of understood, and implied.

So it is kind of redundant to call someone a subject matter expert.

It is a $5 term for a 25 cents concept.
