Entertaiment is something which can be consumed and gives pleasure. It can be a form of art, music, dance, movies, novels, games, festivals or any event which takes you into another world in euphoric state, makes you forget your problems and wish that the moment just lasts forever.
From Middle English entretenement, from Old French entretenement and latin intertenere, from the root ten, meaning “stretch.” These examples are programmatically compiled from various online sources, and may not reflect the views of Merriam-Webster or its editors.
Bates and Ferri (2010) suggest that entertainment can be defined by six elements: it is understood objectively, encompasses communication between text and audience, involves external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience and is passive in nature. It also changes and evolves, and can be adapted to suit any size of audience.
