From Medieval Latin intertenere, from the prefix in- + tenere, meaning β€œto hold inside.” To entertain, or be entertained, is to fill someone with pleasure, amusement, or distraction. Often, what is considered entertaining to one person or group is not enjoyable to others. The familiar forms of entertainment β€” movies, books, music, art, games, and live performances β€” have demonstrated an amazing capacity to cross-over media and endure in popular culture.
