Entertaiment is an activity or event that provides amusement, relaxation, or diversion. It can be a form of art, sport, recreation, or even social gathering. The word comes from the Medieval Latin intertenere, a compound of the prefix inter- and the verb tenere, meaning “to hold inside,” and probably from the Indo-European root ten. The meaning has transformed over time to something like what is now known as entertainment.
