Entertaiment is an activity that holds the attention and interest of an audience or gives pleasure or delight. The term may refer to an idea or a task, but it is more likely to be one of the activities that have developed over thousands of years specifically for the purpose of entertaining. It is derived from the Latin intertenere, or to hold inside, which in turn comes from the Indo-European root ten, meaning to stretch or elongate. It is used mainly in the context of art, theater and cinema. See also amusement, fun, and gratification.
