What is Entertaiment?


Article About Entertaiment

Entertainment is a form of recreation, diversion, or amusement. It can take the form of a film, television, or computer game; playing music or attending concerts; reading books and novels for enjoyment and insight; sports; visiting museums and galleries; or engaging in visual arts. It can be experienced at an individual level, in a couple or group, for the enjoyment of each other; or on a grand scale: ceremonies, banquets, religious festivals, and satires may be entertaining to large crowds.

The word is derived from the Medieval Latin intertenere, from the prefix “inter” meaning “inside,” and the suffix tenere, from the Indo-European root ten. It was also influenced by the verb entertain, which can mean to divert or amuse. Entertaiment can help the brain realease seratonin and dopamine, which helps with understanding the world and coping with social backstabbing, murders, and other themes our minds were evolved to deeply react to.
