What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the act of bringing amusement, enjoyment or pleasure to others. There are many different forms of entertainment, such as plays, movies, sports, games and books. It is also an important part of children’s development, as they use it to mimic adult behaviour and prepare them for future responsibilities like child rearing and social interaction. The word can be abbreviated to entmt on fliers or in industry news publications when space is limited, but it is not commonly used in regular writing.

The story of Scheherazade, from Persian professional storytelling traditions, has been retold as music by composers Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; in film by Pasolini; and in innovative video games.
