Articles about Entertaiment

The word entertainment is derived from the Latin intertenere (to hold inside). It combines the prefix inter meaning ‘inside’ and the suffix tenere, based on the Indo-European root ten, which meant to stretch. Throughout history, the concept of entertainment has evolved along with the evolution of different media. It is a multi-layered concept and encompasses many familiar forms that have demonstrated the ability to cross over multiple media and remain successful.

According to Bates and Ferri (2010), entertainment is an activity understood objectively that encompasses communication between text and audience from external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience and occurs in a passive form.
