What Is Entertaiment?


Entertainment is a broad term that covers a variety of activities and events that give people pleasure. It includes performances of plays and films, as well as activities like reading or watching television. It also encompasses family activities that help children and adults develop relationships and learn to appreciate the value of a life well-lived. Many of the activities that fall into the category of entertainment can be considered work, but others are not. Entertaiment is often abbreviated entmt in headlines, newspaper titles, and TV news banners where space is limited. Occasionally, entmt is used to denote the phrase ‘fun,’ but it is not a standard word in English.
