I was browsing fairly random old questions to see if I could learn a few little things ( I could) and stumbled across this one-
I understand the main thrust of the question OK. That's not my problem here. Where I am slightly puzzled however is in the く after 新し.
I realise this is an idiotic question however I am very very bad at grammar. Even with English it is only after I spent a few months teaching the stuff that I learned what simple things like nouns and verbs are. I want to get from the stage of reading and understanding towards understanding every little thing in a sentence however.
I understand this く is something to do with 新しい being a い adjective? But...thinking about it I can only recall 新しくない as a reason for a く to interlude. But that clearly isn't the case here.
Why is this く necessary? Why would 新しいできた not do?
