In some languages "new" could be used both as a noun or as an adjective. I read that in English, "new" is only an adjective. Is it true? When I say: "a new", is it wrong? How else can I properly say something along the lines "a new"?
In other words, is it ok to say: "a new is being created"? If not, how to say it properly?
Example - hmm, I cannot really think of one. Maybe: "a miracle is when a new comes to life out of nothing". I try to name the result of a creation.
The problem is, in my native language there is no distinction between "new" as a noun and "new" as an adjective. "Newness" is, if I understand correctly, the general quality of "a new" or of "something new", hence it is a bit different from what I'm looking for.
"The new" is almost perfect - but I'm not sure if I can use "the" as this is the first time I talk about that "new".
