middle). Of course, it can also mean "sea surrounded by land" which it also is; indeed, "mediterranean sea" with a small "m" is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mediterranean_sea_(oceanography) a technical oceanographic term]] for seas mostly (but not entirely, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endorheic_basin that's another thing]]) cut off from the ocean, and whose circulation is therefore dominated by salinity and density rather than wind.
