What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a broad term that encompasses many different experiences. It can range from the individual selecting a piece of pre-recorded entertainment for his/her own enjoyment, to a banquet adapted for two, or from sports events staged for spectators to global competitions broadcast for general entertainment. Many activities that were once a part of everyday life have become entertainment in their own right; such as hunting or war, or cooking, and others, such as fencing or archery, have developed into spectator sports.

You will sometimes see the word entertainment abbreviated to entmt on industry news publications or on fliers where space is limited. However, this is not a widely accepted abbreviation and the word is usually not abbreviated in general writing.
