Can you provide a little context where you saw it used, if possible?

comment The meaning of く
I tried to keep the original answer really simple since the question was so basic, but I've made some edits to address the ambiguity that was present. Please feel free to suggest changes for clarity or edit them in yourself.

Interestingly enough 新しく has its own entry in edict as an adverb. I wonder where that came from.

comment The meaning of く
If it modifies a verb then isn't that the definition of an adverb? And I'm seriously asking this because if I'm wrong I'd like to know. Doesn't the 連用形 often function as an adverb?

comment What are the differences between 選ぶ, 選択, and 選定, if any?
1. I meant 選択 and 選定, I should have said that explicityle. (2) Why does it matter if 選定 is or isn't in my active vocabulary? Yes, it might be shocking to know that as someone who's not a We Native Speakers I find it useful to check a dictionary from time to time to make sure I have the nuances worked out right, but this is not a concession that I have no idea what I'm talking about. Let my answer stand on its own and don't try to judge it based on your perception of how good I am at Japanese. If there's something wrong in it, feel free to leave constructive comments telling me where.

comment the difference between てある and past forms?
@Ryan I am doing a little bit more research on this particle issue now, but I think that in that example the point is more about the fact that the page is the thing being acted on and not the person and not necessarily a classification of it as a "resultant state" usage of てある. I'll update my answer when I find more information though.

comment the difference between てある and past forms?
@Ryan I know I'm not an expert or a native, but this is from the article I linked: "「~てある」が準備を表すときには動詞の制限がなく、また対象が「が」格で表されるという特徴も備えていません。"

Or perhaps 帰ってきたあと? I know I have an unhealthy reliance on たら for a lot of things

@TokyoNagoya I wasn't totally sure about how natural that sounded but would you mind telling me where exactly it sounds bad? I guess 帰ってきてご飯を作った would be better, yeah?
