French grammar question

Jump to last reply

Actually, someone else's posting about French language classes reminded me that I've had a question recently that I can't seem to answer on my own--I've already consulted my French dictionaries and grammar books.

Some adjectives change in meaning if they are placed before or after the noun they are modifying.

nouvelle, nouveau are in that group.
If I recall correctly, the subtle difference is between calling something 'new' as opposed to 'brand new.'

Anyway, if I go into a shop and want to buy a new watch band for my watch, do I want un nouveau bracelet, or un
bracelet nouveau ?
