Article About Entertaiment
Something that provides pleasure, diversion, or amusement. Examples include a film, television program, or sporting event. Entertainment may be lighthearted or serious, but it usually reaches a broad audience. It is an evolving medium, and many of its themes are cross-generational and recurrent.
Etymology: The suffix -ment has become common with verb stems to form nouns expressing the effect or result of the action (as in amazement, betterment, and merriment). It is also used with other verbs to make nouns of emotion or mental impression (such as delight, gratification, and amusement). The prefix inter- means “among” or “inside,” and the Latin root tenere means to hold, from the PIE root ten, meaning to stretch. It entered English from French in the late 15th century.
