This presentation aspires to pinpoint the necessity of eliminating homonyms and synonyms. It attempts to illustrate the impact of misinforming that results from lexical disorder within the context of cross-disciplinary transfer of knowledge, standards setting and global business communication. The examples of homonyms and synonyms that have been observed to cause misinterpretations are presented. The genuine need for introducing a multidisciplinary transparent lexicon is advocated. A definition of a term "definition" is presented. Exemplary definitions are provided as models of transparent lexical terms. It is recommended that a hierarchy of terminology be adopted, giving the most fundamental disciplines the priority, and making sure that the other disciplines conform. A properly defined term is an information probability intensifier.
