What is Entertaiment?



The word Entertainment is often abbreviated to entmt. This is usually done on fliers or industry news publications where space is an issue, but it can also be found in short hand note taking. Entertaiment can range in scale from a single individual choosing personal entertainment such as watching a movie, to a family dinner with music and dance, or a large party with appropriate food, beverages, and entertainment. It can even include a performance intended for an audience of thousands.

Entertaining involves providing pleasure, diversion, or amusement, but may also serve a deeper purpose such as socialization or insight. It may also be seen as a way to learn and grow through play, as is the case with children’s entertainment.
