    what verbs go with 'agenda'?

    Dear teachers

    I am looking for verbs that collocate with 'agenda'.

    I know some of these may be right. Could you please check if I am right with the interpretations?

    I set the agenda. (I created a list of topics/items to be done or discussed);
    I went through all the agenda. (I manage to have/get all things done);
    I couldn't finish the agenda. (Not all items were discussed/done)
    They haven't taken up the agenda. (They haven't done any of the items)
    I will have to add a few more items to this agendum.

    Thank you

    Re: what verbs go with 'agenda'?

    I have a hidden agenda.
    We stuck to the agenda and ended on time.

    It's an odd question, I think.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I would personally never use "agendum".

    I only use it when explaining why the plural of 'referendum' is 'referendums' - not everyone agrees though!

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

    BNC gives these:

    1 HIDDEN AGENDA 6
    2 MEETING AGENDA 5
    3 RESEARCH AGENDA 3
    4 ISSUES AGENDA 2
    5 PRODUCE AGENDA 2
    6 WORKING AGENDA 2
    7 PUBLISHED AGENDA 1
    8 UPDATE AGENDA 1
    9 SHIFTING AGENDA 1
    10 SEE AGENDA 1
    11 ROCKIN' AGENDA 1
    12 RIGHTS AGENDA 1
    13 RIGHT AGENDA 1
    14 OUT AGENDA 1
    15 NEGOTIATING AGENDA 1
    16 IS AGENDA 1
    17 GENERATED AGENDA 1
    18 DOMINATING AGENDA 1
    19 DEFINED AGENDA 1
    20 CUT AGENDA 1
    21 CREATE AGENDA 1
    22 CONTROLLED AGENDA 1
    23 CLEANUP AGENDA 1
    24 CHANGE AGENDA 1
    25 AM AGENDA 1
    26 'S AGENDA 1
    My search allowed anything verbal - so, e.g. 'hidden agenda' -- but you can extrapolate from these: if you can have a 'hidden agenda' you can 'hide your agenda' (although I see that no one in BNC has.)

    See more here British National Corpus (BYU-BNC)
