Greek and Latin Roots of English: Agenda

According to the WordReference dictionary the word agenda means "a list, plan, outline of things to be done or voted upon, etc."

According to the Etymology dictionary, agenda comes from Latin agenda, literally "things to be done", neuter plural of agendus, gerundive of agere "to do" (see: act).

Other words refered to "act" are actor, actual and active.

We can see the use of agenda in this article.
