EDIT: After reading an answer that explained why I had difficulty with the subtitles, I'm editing my question's title so that it's more useful to people when they search French.SE, so that they can find the useful information about gemination in the answer.
In this youtube video, in the first fifteen seconds, the auto-generated subtitles give:
Ça a été sans aucun doute leur sujet des derniers mois, les pitbulls. Dans le coin droit, on trouve des gens qui les aiment tellement qu'ils sont prêts menacé de mort ceux qui s'y opposent. Parce que la meilleure façon de convaincre les gens que ton chien pas dangereux, c'est de leur montrer que toi, tu de l'est encore plus.
I'm having trouble understanding "tu de l'est encore plus".
Some thoughts I have when trying to understand this:
- I can't figure out what the l' replacing?
- If I try to make the clause simpler, I might try to remove the l'. Then I get "tu d'est encore", instead of the es that I would expect (as in, "tu d'es encore"). So it seems that the "tu" has no conjugated verb attached to it; but it seems that the "tu" does require a conjugated verb -- where it is!?
- Perhaps the auto-generated subtitles meant "tu es" instead of the "tu est" that they gave. I still have never seen a construction like "Tu d'es + encore plus" or "Je de suis + encore plus" before.
- Can you help me understand the structure of "Tu de l'est encore plus", and its meaning? What is the l' replacing?
- Can you give me other example sentences with the same or a similar structure?
