증명해 보이게 될 것이다 - 문장의 문법의 이해가 맞나요?

 

문장의 문법의 내 이해가 맞나요?

그들은 자신들이 역경을 이겨냈음을 증명해 보이게 될 것이다.

증명해 보이다 = to prove, to show proof, to prove and show
-게 되다 = to come to..., to eventually...
-ㄹ 것이다 = will (basic future tense)

증명해 보이다 + -게 되다 + -ㄹ 것이다
증명해 보이게 될 것이다
will eventually prove, will come to show proof (more literal, but not natural in English)

감사합니다!

    Excellent!

    The ambiguity of the relationship of meaing of the connective ending "-아서/어서/여서"

    As you know, it is used in many different ways. This ending joins two clause with the relation of meaning in such as "the order of action", "a cause or reason of the action", and "ways and means".

    Hence, to identify the meaning of this ending is somewhat difficult, even native Korean. For examples,

    끌어(서) 당기다.
    밀어(서) 내다.
    잡아(서) 채다
    주워(서) 담다.
    증명해(서) 보이다.

    According to English dictionary, the verb "prove" means "to show that something is true by providing facts, information, etc.",

    Likewise, we can consider that "증명해 보이다." is "to show(보이다) that something is true by proving(증명해서) it". or "to prove and show"


    And the expression "-게 될 것이다" has the nuance of a predition or prophey. as in "to be guaranteed to do something". For example,

    Even if we try to keep it a secret, she will finally find out.
    우리가 그것을 비밀로 하더라도, 그녀가 결국 그것을 알아낼 것이다.
    or
    우리가 그것을 비밀로 하더라도,그녀가 결국 그것을 알아내게 될 것이다.
    Even if we try to keep it a secret, she will eventually come to find it out.
    Even if we try to keep it a secret, she is guaranteed to find it out.

    알아내다(주동, active). to find out
    알아내게 되다(피동, passive). come to find out
