English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. entertainment

    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.

How to use entertainment in a sentence?

  1. Kristan Hawkins:

    The entertainment industrys obsession with abortion is blinding them to the reality that more and more Americans consider themselves pro-life and support limits on abortion, the story that Hollywood tries to tell about simple abortion decisions are in conflict with the reality that people know from their own lives. Abortions harm women, many of whom would have kept the baby if they had known more about their options.

    I worked in entertainment for many years being a life coach for a lot of different pop stars and actors, and my biggest pet peeve is when they use excuses because they call themselves artists, i ’m here today to explain to you that being an artist and being talented are two different things. To me, being an artist is living your authentic life.

Kev’s gonna be OK, and we’re gonna have to deal with that as his teammates, but in terms of where I am with my life outside of this, I stay rooted in my decision, and that’s just what it is, i just am standing rooted in what I believe in and though we’re dealing with this right now with Kev.
