The Meaning and Use of the Word Entertaiment


Entertaiment is a large category of activities that give pleasure. It includes everything from plays and movies to sports and reading.

It is not uncommon for stories with a strong entertainment value to inspire other media. The story of Scheherazade, for example, inspired Rimsky-Korsakov to write an orchestral piece; Pasolini made a film adaptation and there is even a game based on it.
