    Post rundown list

    I hear a lot about the expression "rundown list", but I have not found it defined anywhere by simple googling.

    Would you add it to your list, please?

    Re: rundown list

    If you "run down a list" you are exmaining a list.

    "He ran down the list of alternatives, and chose to tell the truth."

    "He even ran down the list of his old college buddies, but couldn't find someone to go with him."

    "If you run down the list of test scores, you'll find yours near the bottom."
