Articles about Entertaiment
The word entertainment is derived from the Latin intertenere, meaning to hold inside. The Indo-European root ten, also means to stretch or extend something. This suggests that entertainment is a kind of stretching or exaggerating, which is often the case.
In modern society, many forms of entertainment can be found in a wide range of media. They can be private, such as an individual who chooses a particular pre-recorded product for entertainment; to the large scale of a festival or religious celebration, or even a global event. Entertainment is an activity that is understood objectively, involves communication between text and audience, has an external stimulus, provides pleasure, and requires the audience to be passive.
