The Word of the Day
Entertaiment is a noun that means agreeable occupation for the mind, diversion or amusement. It may be a performance, such as a play or a dance recital; it could also be an activity, like reading or solving a crossword puzzle; or it could be a type of food or an event. Entertainment can be adapted to suit any scale, from a person selecting private entertainment from a now enormous range of pre-recorded products, through the provision of a banquet for two or a party suited to any number of people, through performances that are staged and broadcast to audiences of thousands. It can even be a source of sport, as activities that were once used in hunting or war have become spectator sports.
