English term or phrase:saws
Greater disposable income and easier mobility - helped by cheaper safety bicycles - **saws** the emergence in towns of spectator sports, theatrical entertainments and the new craze, the cinema.
Alright, if this is standard English I might consider giving up translation and looking for another job. It appears to be a typo, right? I checked in webster's, but but "to saw" does not fit in here, plus using the present tense would be awkward. I was thinking it could stand for "saw" or "shows", although I'm not quite sure they fit here. Thanks beforehand and merry xmas.
