      Medium, when referring to the various ways we acquire information, such as radio, tv, newspapers, magazines, internet, word-of-mouth etc., is used to speak of only one of the above. Media in this sense, is a collective noun, referring to all of the above, and therefore plural.

      Medium, referring to cooking of steaks etc., has no plural.

      Medium, referring to a person or other agency acting as a go-between for the living and those who have passed on, would be singular, and the plural (more that one at a time) would be 'Mediums'.

      i've noticed that the plural of medium has been used both ways, and while this is one of the OCD questions, which is preferred in the art classroom--mediA or mediUMS, or doesn't it matter?  :-) julie, southern california
