What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is the art of amusing, diverting, and entertaining people. It can be found in all media, including film, television, books, games, music, sports, and more. The word entertain originates from the Medieval Latin intertenere, a contraction of the prefix inter- “inside” and tenere, meaning to hold or maintain (from the root ten). This definition reflects the idea that entertainment can be a force that maintains and holds together many aspects of our society, culture, and lifestyle. It can also be a source of joy, and stimulate learning. It can have negative impacts if it is not properly regulated. [3]

What is entertainment to one person may be considered as cruel by another.
