Articles about Entertaiment

Something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement: a novel or a play to entertain the mind; a banquet of entertainment; solving a crossword puzzle; attending an opera or other theatrical performance; a restaurant providing entertainment for its patrons. Historically, the idea of entertainment has been a broad one and has evolved to accommodate many forms, including those that may be serious in intent: ceremonies; celebrations or festivals; religious festivals; and satire. The word originated in the Middle Ages from Latin intertenere, with the prefix inter meaning “inside” and tenere the Indo-European root ten, meaning to stretch. It is a fascinating example of how words can transform and expand as they move across different media.
