What is Entertaiment?

Article about Entertaiment

Entertaiment is defined as anything affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement. This can be a hobby such as playing the daily crossword puzzle, an event such as a performance, or just something that entertains you such as watching TV or reading a book. According to Oliver and Barstsch (2010) entertainment is understood objectively, communicates from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience to exist and takes place in a passive form.

The word derives from the Medieval Latin inter tenere, from a Latin suffix -tan, meaning “to hold inside,” and is related to the Indo-European root ten, meaning “stretch.” Entertaiment can be on any scale, from the choice of entertainment for an individual (which can now be found almost anywhere), to a banquet adapted for two, to performances geared to thousands.
