Entertaiment | Articles | Merriam-Webster
Something that arouses amusement, delight, or pleasure in an agreeable way. The pleasure that is derived from these things is sometimes so intense and euphoric that the person who experiences them may wish that the experience never ends—that it could continue forever, like the rapture of a mystical experience or the feeling of being at one with nature. The word entertainment is derived from the Latin intertenere, which is related to the Indo-European root ten, meaning to hold inside. The word has a rich history of usage and has been adapted to different media and contexts over time.
