Well, monomorphism means that your variable, function, and method references need to be known at compile time.  This is the exact opposite of polymorphism, or late-binding of references.

Metamorphism is code permutation: i.e the code changes it's underlying structure (assembly instructions, script variances, whatever) without actually changing functionality.  This is generally used in complex viruses (virii?) to try to avoid detection.

I am not familiar with the term unimorphism...  Maybe someone else can help you out there.
