Definitions for "mode"
The scale as affected by the various positions in it of the minor intervals; as, the Dorian mode, the Ionic mode, etc., of ancient Greek music.
a Western classical concept, in which at least one of the 7 notes of the major scale is changed (raised or lowered) to create a new scale. In this way, different scales can be formed, creating a subset of scales similar to raagas. There are many modes. The Aeolian mode of the major scale gives the minor scale. Modes are very similar to raagas and were originally used in Gregorian chants
Each buffer has two modes associated with it: a major mode and a minor mode. A buffer must have one major mode, but can have zero or more minor modes associated with it. Major modes govern how certain commands behave, while minor modes determine whether or not certain actions take place.
A particular form of travel (i.e., walking, bicycling, traveling by bus, traveling by carpool, traveling by train, etc.)
A single electromagnetic wave travelling in an optical fiber.
General term that covers all of the carrier classifications based on the right of way, propulsion system, etc. Carriers moving on highways are referred to as motor transportation mode or highway mode.
An average found by determining the most frequent value in a group of values.
the value of the variable in a frequency distribution or probability distribution, at which the probability or frequency has a maximum. The maximum may be local or global. Distributions with only one such maximum are called unimodal; with two maxima, bimodal, and with more than two, multimodal.
The most frequent values considered from observation or data.
The path a photon takes in going from one end of an optical fiber to another.
The path followed by a radio wave between transmitter and receiver. The so-called first propagation mode is the mode with the least number of hops for a circuit. The second propagation mode for a circuit will have one extra hop.
Specifically, an electromagnetic field distribution that satisfies theoretical requirements for propagation in a waveguide or oscillation in a cavity. Modes exist in fibres and lasers. Very simply, they may be thought of as "paths" in which the light rays travel. (Note: Modes are not to be confused with channels).
The form in which the proposition connects the predicate and subject, whether by simple, contingent, or necessary assertion; the form of the syllogism, as determined by the quantity and quality of the constituent proposition; mood.
Same as Mood.

In UNIX, an octal number that describes what access a file's owner, group, and others have to the file. See also article 1.23.
The file mode. If the value is blank, the mode attribute is removed. If no value is specified, the command computes a value, which can be an octal number or a string ( rwx), and have the TCB, SUID, SGID, and SVTX attributes.
Another word for room resonance. When sound energy is restricted by boundaries, such as walls, floor, and ceiling, waves are developed at certain frequencies, or wavelengths that are integers of the distance between the room boundaries. Room modes, or resonances, cause standing waves because once the wave is generated it stands there, i.e., the positive pressure peaks (anti-nodes) and negative pressure troughs (nodes) stay stationary within the boundaries.

interface: A state in which you choices are limited. In general, Mac software tries to avoid modes and let you choose any command at any time. Dialog boxes are a willful intrusion of modality because they occur when specific information is needed before the program can continue.
In user interface design, a mode is a distinct setting within a computer program or any physical machine interface, in which the same user input will produce perceived different results than it would in other settings. The most well-known modal interface components are probably the Caps lock and Insert keys on the standard computer keyboard, both of which put the user's typing into a different mode after being pressed, then return it to the regular mode after being re-pressed.
