The sense of “gratify, amuse” is 1620s.

A common suffix of Latin origin forming nouns indicating the result or product of an action (as amazement, betterment, merriment). The suffix is inserted as -ment after verb stems ending in –er and –ir; with other verb stems it is added as –e- (as in commence-e-ment from commenc-er, sent-e-ment from sentir). Also used in many forms of the noun entertain.
