Hi !!

Can you help me with this "IF" sentence?

If I eat this cake, I will have a stomachache.

My try: Kono keeki o tabedattara, onaka ga itai desu.


Thanks!!!

    My try: Kono keeki o tabedattara, onaka ga itai desu.:cross:
    Kono keeki o tabetara, onaka ga itakunaru.:tick:
          このケーキを食べたら、お腹が痛くなる。

    You could also say:
    Kono keeki o tabetara, i ga okasikunaru [itakunaru].
    このケーキを食べたら、胃がおかしくなる。

    It depends on the background information that I hope the original poster will kindly provide, but I think I can assume that the speaker has already tasted the cake once and had the misfortune of having a stomach-ache.

    Japanese has a few ways to express IF. For consequences that the speaker knows to be sure to result from the condition, the standard word for IF is -to.

    Hence "If I eat this cake, I will have a stomachache" can be translated with my assumptions above as;
    このケーキを食べると、(私は)お腹が痛くなる。
