Threefold ambiguity: French ‘nouvelle’

Let us mention the issue of threefold ambiguity: french ‘nouvelle’ can translate into:
nutizia‘ (‘piece of news’)
or ‘nuvella‘ (short story’)
or ‘nova‘ (‘new’)

The disambiguation between ‘nutizia‘ (‘piece of news’)
or ‘nuvella‘ (short story’) is semantic (hard)
while the disambiguation between ‘nutizia‘/’nuvella‘ (noun)
and ‘nova‘ (adjective) is grammatical (medium difficulty)
