Probably the biggest issue is what to call the elements of general inheritance (genes/mnemes), cultural inheritance (memes), organic inheritance (genes?!?) environmental inheritance (?) - but let's skip over that issue for today.
I have previously identified some of the more irregular terminology. Today, here are some of my proposals for tidying things up:
|Memeplex||Gene complex||Start using the term "geneplex"|
|Memetic junk||Junk DNA||Start using the terms "junk memes" and "junk genes"|
|Allomeme||Allele||Ditch "alleles" entirely; use the terms "meme" and "gene" instead; use the term "locus" more|
|Vaccime||Vaccine||Start using the terms "memetic vaccine" and "genetic vaccine"|
|Phemotype||Phenotype||Start using the terms "meme product" and "gene product"|
|Phemome||Phenome||Start using the terms "meme product group" and "gene product group"|
|Memune system||Immune system||Start using the terms "memetic immunity" and "genetic immunity"|
|Meme warfare||Biological warfare||Start using the terms "memetic warfare" and "genetic warfare"|
|Population memetics||Population genetics||Start using the terms "meme frequency analysis" and "gene frequency analysis"|
|-||Cladistics||Ditch in favour of phylomemeticsand phylogenetics|
|-||Cladograms||Ditch in favour of phylomemetic trees and phylogenetic trees|
|Library / Database||Gene bank||No proposal at this time|
|Ideosphere||Biosphere||No proposal at this time|
I'll explain more about the problem with "population genetics" in due course.
You will see that one theme is to give up trying to fit memetics around the irregualr terminology of biology - and to fix the problem at its source.
It is painful to lose the "pheme-" prefix - but I think it has got to go.
Another pretty major terminology isssue impacting on memetics is "fixing" the terminology of symbiosis. Currently that borrows heavily from epidemiology, which has all the best terminology. However, using the terminology of epidemiology and parasites for mutualists can quickly get confusing - and the whole area seems to be in need of major terminology surgery. My initial approach to this issue is here.
