The Spanish phrase "el nuevo" can be literally translated to English as "the new." However, because adjectives in English are not necessarily prefaced with definite articles, "el nuevo" can also be simply translated as "new."
Unlike English, nouns in Spanish are classified as either masculine or feminine. When applied to a feminine noun, the word el nuevo is written as la nueva. The masculine plural version of the word is los nuevos, and the feminine plural version is las nuevas. The word nuevo comes from the Latin adjective novus and the Proto-Indo-European newos, both meaning new, young, fresh or recent.
