Entertaiment is a popular word that can be abbreviated to entmt on fliers and in industry news publications. You might also see it abbreviated in short hand note taking, or on a headline when space is limited. The term is broad enough that it includes activities that are both recreational and educational (9), preparing children for adult responsibilities, such as child rearing or employment (5); or promoting physical skills, such as those needed for sports, music or dancing (2,3). Stories that entertain, such as the Scheherazade story from Persian professional storytelling tradition (4), are often retold in different media, including music (Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski), film and innovative video games.
