What is the effect of putting よ after an infinitive verb form?



Thanks in advance! ありがとうございます! ^^

    Your sentence is very unnatural. Wasn't it なりなよ or なるよ?

    I might attribute it to some dialects if not a typo. Aug 9, 2020 at 15:44
  • oops I checked it and it was actually "なれ" instead of "なり" Thanks for the input!

Generally よ is a kind of intensifiers so "a infinitive verb + よ" will strengthen the meaning of the verb.

In your example なる (なり isn't an infinitive though) means "to become", so なるよ! will be "surely become ... !"
