    Well, that's a darn good question. Has me puzzled why there are two prefixes that mean the same. I Googled "Prefix uni" and then "Prefix mono" and got the same results: it means one, which of course I knew. So I guess they are interchangeable. Although I'd never say, "He's riding on a monocycle, or He died from carbon unioxided poisoning. Heheh. I wonder how it is decided which should be used when a new word comes along.
