This presentation provides an introduction to multimodal mediated theory, which forms the basis for multimodal (inter)action analysis. Beginning with a discussion of the mediated action and its derivatives – the lower-level, higher-level, and frozen mediated actions – the presentation delineates the origin of multimodal mediated theory as well as a theoretical difference to other frameworks to analyse interaction. The presentation then moves to the definition of mode in multimodal mediated theory. The definition of mode as system of mediated action, is here discussed in relation to other approaches to multimodality. Following this theoretical discussion, the presentation provides an empirical example for this conception of mode as a system of mediated action.
