A clown at a kid’s birthday party, a Broadway show, or your friends fighting over the last potato chip at the restaurant–all of these are forms of entertainment. From the Middle English entretenement, which is based on the Medieval Latin intertenere (to hold inside), it later came to mean amusement or distraction. Today we often talk about theatrical or visual entertainment as shows and audio entertainment as mostly music, though the term can also be used to refer to movies, TV programs, or even your iPod playlist.
