I saw this sentence in Youtube. "Though, Palmares is no more thousands of other quilombos persist to this day." (The source: https://youtu.be/5ckmXwx2n88?t=284)

I can't understand the structure of this sentence. How can one sentence have two verbs(is, persist) without any connectors like conjunctions or relativizers?

    The comma is in the wrong place. "Though Palmares is no more, thousands of other quilombos persist to this day". Bad subtitles!

  • The comma is misplaced in the subtitles; it should come after more. 'Even though Palmares no longer exists, thousands of other quilombos still remain.' Commented Dec 29, 2022 at 16:56
  • Thank you all! I thought "though" is an adverb like "~~~, though(=however)." cuz of the comma. If I had heard the sentence first without subtitles, I would've understood.

As stated in the comments by @BillyKerr and @KateBunting, the comma is simply in the wrong place, and that part of the video should instead be transcribed as "Though Palmares is no more, thousands of other quilombos persist to this day.", which could (possibly) be rephrased more simply (to explain what it means) as: "Palmares no longer exists, but thousands of other quilombos still do."
