Discuss and learn French: French vocabulary, French grammar, French culture etc.
Yep "la famille de Peter" is correct, but it's "le nouveau bébé".
Thanks; I thought descriptive words go after the noun? As in "le chat gris"
They often do-- and colour adjectives practically always do. But there are a few circumstances where they don't.
The word "nouveau" generally goes before the noun when you're describing in a "matter of fact" way that something is new/has recently appeared etc.
If you put "nouveau" after the noun, it means something like "which is a new concept", "which is a new experience" -- i.e. it's a more subjective statement.
I'm learning a little bit each day, thanks again!
would there be any diference in meaning or usage between l'année nouvelle and la nouvelle année?
