The word entertainment comes from the medieval Latin intertenere, meaning “to hold inside.” It may refer to a private enjoyment —such as watching a movie or having a meal with friends — or it may be a public event such as a concert, play or sports competition. It may be serious or satirical, or it might have a religious context. It can also be a form of education, such as a lesson or speech.
