  1. 'nouvelle' is the feminine of 'nouvel'and 'nouveau'.

    'nouvel' and 'nouveau' are the same thing but we use 'nouvel' in front of a vowel and 'h'
    'neuf' is about an obect and means 'not used'

  2. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. May I suggest you invest in a good paperback French--->English, English--->French dictionary.

    If you look up nouveau, nouvel, nouvelle you will find the meaning to be: new (other, additional, different, if used in front of a noun) (recent if used after the noun.)
    nouveau + masculine singular noun EXCEPT before a vowel (a, e, i, o, u) or a mute "h" because then you use nouvel.
    nouvelle + feminine singular noun
    nouveaux + masculine plural noun
    nouvelles + feminine plural noun.

    If you look up neuf, neuve it is also new but more in the sense of "brand new" or "unused."
