Entertaiment is one of the most fluid, versatile forms of cultural expression. It can be personalized to an individual, as in the selection of a movie for two from an enormous array of pre-recorded products; it can be adapted for a family gathering, complete with music and dance; it can be geared toward a public audience—from a large banquet or performance to a worldwide webcast. It can incorporate the elements of many familiar types of culture, although it is often associated with amusement. Click on a collocation to see more examples.
