Some words that begin with the "uni-" prefix are "university," "unicycle" and "unisex."

The "uni-" prefix is used with words of Latin origin, as it is a shortened form of "unus," meaning one, or the single item. For words of Greek origin, the "mono-" prefix is used instead, though the two share the same meaning. These prefixes were adopted as a means of making compound words from loanwords, by pairing the appropriate prefix with the original language. The Latin prefix for something consisting of two parts is "bi-," and "tri-" is for three.
