Articles about “Entertaiment”

Entertainment is a broad term for a variety of activities that are enjoyed as sources of pleasure. It includes the simple activities of daily life, such as solving a crossword puzzle, as well as more elaborate performances, such as a ball. Entertainment can be adapted to any scale and media: a familiar story, such as Scheherazade from Persian professional storytelling tradition, may be retold as a music composition by composers like Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski, as a film or television program, and even as an innovative video game.

The word is derived from Medieval Latin inter tenere, the prefix inter meaning inside and the suffix -tenere indicating holding something within. It is also related to a Latin root, tener, that means to stretch.
