If I'm supposed to be writing an abstract for a paper on something in the media and it asks for a medium and mode, what would the mode be?

I am drawing a blank... The medium would be TV or the internet or whatever, but I can't think of what the mode would be...

Could be a trick question. Are they looking for the median and mode for a set of numbers?

Nevermind. Google is your friend:

Jewitt (2004) makes a useful, important distinction between the oft-confused terms medium and mode: "Medium refers to technologies of dissemination, such as printed book, CD Rom, or computer application. Mode refers to any organized, regular means of representation and communication, such as still image, gesture, posture, and speech, music, writing, or new configurations of the elements of these" (p. 184).
