When I Google translate the sentence it says "it will happen very naturally".

If I break down the sentence into parts:

Goku: very (adverb)

Shizen: naturally (adverb)

Ni sou: ???

Naru: to become

Can someone help explain what the "ni sou" part means?

    You’re splitting it wrong. 自然に + (そう + なる) Dec 6, 2020 at 5:44
  • thank you for clearing the confusion. Since sou is a NA adjective it just simply combined with naru as well after flipping back a few chapters in my genki textbook.

自然に is the adverb form of 自然. When に is attached to the end of な-adjs, they are converted into adverbs. Similarly, when い is replaced with く in い-adjs, they also become adverbs.


そう+なる = become like that

Become like that naturally.

Also, Google translate is not very useful when it comes to learning Japanese. Maybe try pasting the sentence into a dictionary like jisho.org instead.
