symbology

noun; blending
The study of something that represents something else Reason used: The person saying this word was probably confused and decided to add ‘ology’ to the end of a word because he thought it sounded intelligent, an example of hypercorrection. A derivation of ‘symbol.’
 
Don’t try to confuse me with your symbology.
Etymology : perh. A derivation of ‘symbol’ (something that represents something else, often abstract)
