What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a very subjective matter and it gets decided by WHO YOU ARE. A lot of things might be entertainment for one person, but will be considered abomination by another. The fall 2011 issue of T E News attempted to tackle the question of what constitutes entertainment and how it can be transformed. It was not an easy task. The word entertainment is derived from the Middle Latin intertenere, which means “to hold inside.” The prefix inter is similar to the Latin inter- and the suffix -ten is akin to the Indo-European root ten.
