b. Using Perfect Participles as Predicates

In the copulative coordination of two sentences having the same subject and happening sequentially, the predicate of the first conjunct can be used in the shape of a perfect participle (see 17•a.), whereas the coordination can be used asyndetically:

پیرمرد فریادی کشیده، آناً مرد.

Modjtaba Minavi (20th Century AD)

وقایعِ عمده‌یِ آن سال را بعضی‌ها در یک کتاب نوشته، انتشار می‌دهند.

Ali-Akbar Dehkhoda (19th and 20th Century AD)

آب بعد از این که به این حوض‌ها می‌رسید از آن‌ها جاری شده، بیرون می‌آمد.

Modjtaba Minavi (20th Century AD)

Such a perfect participle falls in the same predicative subcategories as the predicate of the second conjunct.
