The word ‘jigsaw’ has two common meanings:
• a puzzle that’s curvaceously cut into small pieces, which you have to attach to one another to collect a whole intended picture
• a straight saw with a fine blade that is able to cut straight or curved lines in a variety of materials, including wood, metal, plastic, and stone.
It is quite possible that puzzles were called jigsaws because of the ability of the saw to make curved cuts since it is exactly such shape the small puzzle pieces have (in their joint places, at least). So, sometimes confusion may arise out of the two different meanings of the same word: for instance, the horror movie ‘Jigsaw’ is about a maniac serial killer (and it is filthy to watch sometimes), not about something not such bloodthirsty. But this film is also filled with riddles and puzzles, which the protagonists have to solve in order to save themselves. So, yeah, there are cases of confusion but there is also play on words, which can be cleverly used at times.
