A-Z of English Words – Entertaiment

The term “entertainment” is closely associated with amusement, but many forms of entertainment can have serious purposes or have evolved to serve specific audiences. They can range from a private moment of amusement or a personal pleasure to an experience shared by thousands of people in public arenas or broadcast for global consumption. Activities that were once necessary skills, such as fencing or archery, have become serious sports and professions for their participants, while also developing into entertainment that appeals to a much wider audience.
