What Is Entertaiment?

The clown at the birthday party, the Broadway show, a stadium rock concert, your friends fighting over the last potato chip—these are all entertainment. From the Old French entretenir, meaning ‘hold together’ or ‘support,’ this word originally referred to hospitality: keeping guests happy and amused. From there, it expanded to include any form of amusement that involves a performance. We talk about theatrical entertainment as shows, visual entertainment as the stuff that we like to look at, and audio entertainment as mostly music. Click on a collocation for more examples.
