Word of the Day: Entertaiment
Entertainment is a broad category that can include anything from an activity intended for personal enjoyment to large-scale performances designed for global audiences. It also demonstrates the ability of familiar forms to cross between different media: for example, the story of Scheherazade from the Persian professional storytelling tradition has inspired music by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, film by Pasolini, and innovative video games.
