Why is it that the same word 'sow' has so different meanings? I`m not capable of seeing the connection between the two meanings. Is there an etymologist out there who´d like to collaborate?

 

  • Sow: the adult female of the pigs.
  • Sow: to seed on land for plant growth; to seed. (Simple Past:  sowed, Past Participle:  sown, sowed).

See you later,

Alonso
