音読み (おんよみ): シン
訓読み (くんよみ): あたら・しい、あら・た、にい
部首 (ぶしゅ):斤 (おのづくり)

Meaning: new



newcomer, new technique or method, — particularly if there are already established methods, techniques or systems.  Example– if Microsoft, Apple, and Linux suddenly met with a new rival… that would be 新手.    Another meaning–(military) fresh supply of troops, reinforcements


new wife, as in newly-wed wife.  Has a slight sexual connotation, in the same way the word “honey moon” does.
