Hari Om! Pranaams!

and the famous advertisement of recent times,

'xerox is a noun, not a verb', please say 'photocopy it' and not 'xerox it'.

On a lighter side, madyagAm looks like pointing to a child sitting in 
between the newly weds in the marriage album, whereas madyamAm as referring 
to the 'man of the match' placed anywhere in the team group photo.

If interpreted, the person referred as madyamAm means that person is 
superior to both at beginning and end. madyagAm could mean the person 
referred is equally related or the entire line is related only thro him to 
the one who refers. (utkarShAt, ubhaya-bhAktatvAt ..mANdUkya bAShya)

Except at the hands of interpreter, both the words convey the same meaning.

In Shri Guru Smriti,
