"These books are new."
Translation:Ces livres sont neufs.
"Nouveau means new in the sense of new to the owner - a change or improvement; that is, something that is new because it's different than what came before, regardless of whether it is brand new from the store."
"Neuf means new in the sense of brand new, fresh out of the factory, first of its kind."
'quoi de neuf ?' = 'what's up?'/'what's new?'/'how's it going?'
