Is this right:


Was に used correctly?

The example sentence I saw was:


Thank you!

    I don't quite understand your question. Is the first and second examples related? The former uses a na-adjective, the latter an i-adjective. Moreover, the latter doesn't look like a meaningful sentence. – broccoli forest Aug 26 at 6:43

  • The second example makes no sense. Is pizza so nutritious? – Yamacure Aug 26 at 15:30

    たくさんピザを食べると太る (big)、でもスポーツするし大丈夫、みたいなことを言いたいんですかね‥ – Chocolate Aug 27 at 1:55

I believe you are wondering if the use of に in the first sentence is correct because the second sentence is not using に in a sentence that seems similar to the first one.

First of all, these two sentences are both correct. Only the difference is that the first one is written in hiragana only, and the second one is written with some kanji.


Now, let's look at the second sentence (Forget the last part of this sentence because it's not related in this case)

たくさんピザを食べると、おおきくなります (correct)

The reason why you don't say

おおきい に なります (wrong)

in this case is because おおきい is an i-adjective.

Here's the rules for become:

If it becomes i-adjective (おおきい、ちいさい、ながい、etc), replace the last with


 おおきく なります

 ちいさく なります

If it becomes na-adjective (きれい、しずか、べんり、etc), just add before なります


 きれいに なります

 しずかに なります

So, the following two sentences are both grammatically correct.
