What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is an important aspect of the human life. It gives us pleasure and relaxes our mind. It is also a great way to spend time with family and friends. It can be used to relieve boredom and depression. It is very important to provide entertainment to our society because it helps to reduce the negative effects of stress and anxiety.

The word entertainment is derived from the Latin intertenere, with the prefix “inside” and the suffix ten, from the Indo-European root ten. The root ten has multiple meanings, including holding inside something and stretching it.

According to Bates and Ferri (2010), entertainment can be described as an activity that is understood objectively, communicates between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience and occurs in a passive form.
