Entertaiment is a type of activity that engages a person and provides him or her pleasure. It can also be a source of education and social interaction. For example, the story of Scheherazade, from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, is so powerful that it inspired orchestral works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; a film by Pasolini and an innovative video game. Entertainment is sometimes abbreviated to entmt on fliers and in industry news publications. It is not abbreviated in general prose.
