English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. enjoyment

    Entertainment and recreation imply thought and mental occupation, tho in an agreeable, refreshing way; they are therefore words of a high order. Entertainment, apart from its special senses of a public performance or a social party, and predominantly even there, is used of somewhat mirthful mental delight; recreation may, and usually does, combine the mental with the physical. Amusement and pastime are nearly equivalent, the latter probably the lighter word; many slight things may be pastimes which we should hardly dignify by the name of amusements. Sports are almost wholly on the physical plane, tho involving a certain grade of mental action; fox-hunting, horse-racing, and baseball are sports. Certain sports may afford entertainment or recreation to certain persons, according to their individual tastes; but entertainment and recreation are capable of a meaning so high as never to be approached by any meaning of sport. Cheer may be very quiet, as the cheer of a bright fire to an aged traveler; merriment is with liveliness and laughter; fun and frolic are apt to be boisterous. Amusement is a form of enjoyment, but enjoyment may be too keen to be called amusement. Compare synonyms for ENTERTAIN.

    Synonyms:
    amusement, cheer, delight, diversion, entertainment, frolic, fun, merriment, pastime, pleasure, recreation, sport

    Antonyms:
    ennui, fatigue, labor, lassitude, toil, weariness, work

How to use enjoyment in a sentence?

  1. Bertrand Russell:

    Man needs, for his happiness, not only the enjoyment of this or that, but hope and enterprise and change.

  2. Andy Harig:

    Dana Gunders want people to eat and enjoy the product when it's at its peak, because that's going to increase their enjoyment, [ and ] encourage them to buy it again.

  3. Tom Brady:

    I’m really an ultimate — my enjoyment comes from not a recognition of kind of what I’ve accomplished as a player in the league, my enjoyment comes from the competition more so than anything. Even yesterday, I was thinking about competing. I was thinking about, this whole year, about competing. I wasn’t thinking about anything other than that. So when the time comes to think about post-career and second career, I’ll think about those things. It’s just when you’re 44, I guess you get asked about that a lot. And a lot of people thought I was done playing football in 2015. A lot of people in 2016 said, ‘You’re done.’ A lot of people in 2018, and when I left the Patriots, they said, ‘You’re done.’.

  4. Horace Mann:

    Education alone can conduct us to that enjoyment which is, at once, best in quality and infinite in quantity.

  5. John Knox:

    Even moving from one to two degrees of warming negatively affects the full enjoyment of a wide range of human rights.
