I'am afraid that that word (nouvealet) does not exist anymore.

It looks like a 16th century word that meant "all young".(nouvelet = nou/ve/lé) ), but, nowadays, the word has disappeared)

Poets said "Voici le printemps nouvelet..." Here is coming the new spring."

Are you sure of the spelling of the word ?

I didn't even knew that word, and I am french, I don't think it would be really useful to learn it (unless you want to study medieval french poetry). I guess it would be pronounced like the french words "nous"-"veut"-"lait"
