What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the broad spectrum of cultural products and experiences that keep people amused, engaged and diverted in our societies. It can be as simple as the personal choice of a movie or TV show from an immense array of pre-recorded options; as elaborate as a banquet for two with music and dance; as communal as a religious festival or satire; and as global as a concert for thousands. The word entertainment has evolved from the medieval Latin inter tenere, which combines the prefix meaning “inside” with the suffix -ment. Click on a collocation below to learn more about it.
