What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a thing which catches our attention and makes us forget all our worries. It can be anything which makes us laugh, cry or even feel euphoric and gives immense pleasure. It is an activity understood objectively, which involves communication between text and audience from external stimulus, offers pleasure and requires the presence of the audience in a passive form.

What is entertainment for one person may be regarded as work or an act of cruelty by another. Familiar forms of entertainment have the ability to move across media, ensuring the continued success of themes, images and structures.

The meanings of some words are changing with time, for example the word “entertainment.” It comes from Middle French entretenement, derived from the Latin intertenere, from the prefix inter and the Latin suffix tenere, meaning to hold inside.
