What may be considered entertainment by one person or group may be viewed as work or cruelty by another. These definitions reflect the diversity of entertainment, and its capacity to cross over different media.
Entertainment is a suffix used to form nouns from verb stems (for example, amazement, betterment, merriment). It is derived from the Latin -mentum, which was added to verbal roots to form nouns indicating the product of the action or the means or instrument of the action. The prefix inter- derives from the Latin inter-, and the suffix -mentum is from the Latin tenere, from the Indo-European root *ten-, meaning to stretch or lengthen.
