I run across a phrase of "You are brand new to GitHub" on the web.
What makes me confused is the word "brand"; is it a noun, an adjective or an adverb?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
brand is a degree word. Degree words modify adjectives to describe the degree to which a property is had. The adjective new is special in that one usually says brand new instead of very new.
