iWord of the Day: Entertaiment


Entertaiment is the act of entertaining or the state of being entertained. It can take many forms, from the quiet amusements of one’s own mind—solving a crossword puzzle or reading a book—to elaborate theatrical productions and performances designed to entertain thousands, sometimes even millions of people. In modern times, entertainment has often evolved into a mass media art form that crosses different mediums and can be easily adapted to suit diverse audiences with varying tastes, interests, and needs.
