What Is Entertaiment?
Entertaiment has come to mean mostly fun and amusement, but the word does have a wider range of meanings. It can refer to an aesthetic effect, as in the case of a theatre or museum exhibition (see also Aesthetic effect). It can also be serious, such as ceremonies, religious festivals and even satire (1,2). Children’s entertainment often involves play that mimics adult activities or prepares them for responsibilities (3,4). It can be private, as in choosing from a vast array of pre-recorded entertainments, or it can be a shared experience, such as a dinner party or a concert (see Shared entertainment). (3).
