Articles About “Entertaiment”
Entertainment is an activity that provides enjoyment and relaxation. It can be done through a variety of media, such as movies and television, music and literature, sports and games, or live performances and visual art. The word entertainment comes from the Medieval Latin intertenere, from the prefix inter meaning “inside,” and the suffix tenere, from the Indo-European root ten, which means to hold or stretch.
Oliver and Barstsch (2010) define entertainment as an activity that is understood objectively, involves communication, includes external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience, and is performed in a passive form. It also stimulates the brain to realease seratonin and dopamine.
