What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the most fun word on the internet. It often gets abbreviated to entmt on fliers or in industry news publications. This is a bit of an oddity as the word is not abbreviated in general prose.

The story of Scheherazade, a woman in the professional storytelling tradition who saves her own life by telling her stories to enthrall her husband and then her son, has been retold in many different media: composers Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski wrote orchestral works; director Pasolini made a film adaptation; and there is even an innovative video game based on this classic tale.
