    The word is 'sow' not 'saw', Mad-ox. In the first, it means 'plant seeds' and in the second 'sow' is the name of the female of some species such as pigs and bears.

    Re: What is the meaning of the word SAW in the following contexts:

    The ‘saw’ in your 1st sentence has the usual meaning as a verb. The 2nd ‘saw’ as a noun is a puzzling one! It doesn’t relate to 2 of the usual meanings of the word. Perhaps someone can help you here. Meanwhile please ensure you’ve got the word right or provide further clarification.

    Thank you for having enlighten my foggy brain. These sentences were in an exercise. Obviously, I solved them wrongly. Now I see my mistake. It is not saw but sow. In this case I understand the meaning of these two sentences.

    Thank you again,

    have a nice weekend,

    Thank you, I got your point. Indeed, it was my mistake.
