Entertaiment: Articles, Pictures & Quizzes
The word entertain means “to amuse or divert.” Entertainment is an activity that can be experienced through various media. It is understood objectively, entails communication between text and audience, comes from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience, and occurs in a passive form. The etymology of the word derives from the Medieval Latin intertenere, and the Indo-European root ten, meaning to stretch, or hold inside. What seems entertaining to one person or group may be a source of displeasure or even cruelty to another.
