Entertaiment – Articles
Something affording pleasure or diversion; agreeable occupation for the mind or spirit: A crossword puzzle is entertainment for many. Originally, the word referred to “entry into a house,” but it has come to be used of anything that holds the attention or amuses. It can be on a small scale, like a private enjoyment of music or a book; at a banquet; or for thousands as in a theatrical production.
According to Bates and Ferri (2010), entertainment is understood objectively; it involves communication between text and audience; it requires an external stimulus and offers pleasure; and it takes place in a passive form.
