Articles About Entertaiment
Entertainment is a broad term for a range of experiences, from a single amusement to a festival or spectacle for thousands. It is often associated with fun and laughter, although many forms of entertainment have a serious purpose, such as religious festivals or satire. The word is also used as a suffix to form nouns, such as amazement, betterment and merriment. It is a common suffix that developed from the Latin -mentum, which was added to verb stems to form nouns of result or consequence (see enchantment, amazement).
Entertaiment is derived from the Medieval French word entretenir, which meant “to keep inside” and may be related to the Latin inter-, meaning “among,” and tenere, from the Indo-European root ten-, meaning “stretch.” The sense of gratify, amuse, delight is from late 15c.
