Fun is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as 'Light-hearted pleasure, enjoyment, or amusement, boisterous joviality or merrymaking, entertainment'. Etymology and usage The word fun is associated with sports, entertaining media, high merriment, and amusement. Although its etymology is uncertain, it has been speculated that it may be derived from fonne (fool) and fonnen (the one fooling the other). An 18th century meaning (still used in Orkney and Shetland) was 'cheat, trick, hoax', a meaning still retained in the phrase 'to make fun of'. The landlady was going to reply, but was prevented by the peace-making sergeant, sorely to the displeasure of Partridge, who was a great lover of what is called fun, and a great promoter of those harmless quarrels which tend rather to the production of comical than tragical incidents. Henry Fielding, The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling (1749) The way the word fun is used demonstrates its distinctive elusiveness and happiness. Expressions such as 'Have fun! ' and 'That was fun! ' indicate that fun is pleasant, personal, and to some extent unpredictable. Expressions such as 'I was making fun of myself' convey the sense that fun is something that can be amusing and not to be taken seriously. The adjective 'funny' has two meanings which often need to be clarified between a speaker and listener. One meaning is 'amusing, jocular, droll' and the other meaning is 'odd, quirky, peculiar'.
