What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a broad and flexible concept which has developed across many different media. It can be a single activity, or an entire range of activities aimed at entertaining a large group of people. What is considered entertainment by one person may be regarded as work or cruelty by another. It is not necessarily associated with amusement but can also include ceremony, celebration, religious festival, and satire for example. The word derives from the medieval Latin intertenere, with the prefix inter meaning “inside” and the suffix tenere, which means to hold or keep together.
