finite number of words to speak

Is there any truth to the common claim that each person has a predetermined number of words that he can speak in his life? Source, please.

If so, then how does it work? In particular (with sources or arguments, please):

  • To whom does this apply? Jews? others?
  • Does each person have the same number (what number?) or words, or does each person have his own number?
  • Can the number change during the course of a person's life, e.g. based on his merits?
  • What happens when he runs out of words? Does he go mute? die?
  • Does any language count? (Agglutinative languages' speakers may live long, depending on the answer to the immediately previous subquestion.)
  • Does writing words count as saying them? Does signing them?
