你如此特别,如此与众不同,是那样的特别。

I have no idea how to properly separate this sentence into words. I want to understand it word by word.

你 / 如此 / 特别, // 如此 / 与众不同, // 是 / 那样的 / 特别。

你 / 如此 / 特别, // 如此 / 与众不同, // 是 / 那样 / 的 / 特别。

你 / 如 / 此 / 特别, // 如 / 此 / 与众不同, // 是 / 那样的 / 特别。

你 / 如 / 此 / 特别, // 如 / 此 / 与众不同, // 是 / 那样 / 的 / 特别。

My tries... :(

  • Oh, I thought it was a little strange, and I've just got to know the reason. It was 是那样的耀眼, not 是那样的特别. XD Oct 7 '17 at 13:48

    your first try is right. "你 / 如此 / 特别, // 如此 / 与众不同, // 是 / 那样的 / 特别。"

"你(是)如此(的)特别,如此(的)与众不同。" = "You are so special (or 'special like this'), so extraordinary"

(的) is optional

The third part "是那样的特别" = "is so special (or 'is special like that' )" is redundant. It should be removed and be a separate sentence.

  • Thank you very much. Actually it was 一段 of a song, so I guess the third part is for emphasizing. However, is it syntactically valid to use ”你是...,是...。(You are ..., and are ....)“ instead of two separate sentences? Oct 7 '17 at 6:50

    @– K. _ It is a literary / poetic style . Also, it might be written this way for the rhyming reason in lyrics.
