The following sentences have been chosen from the following link:
1) John kissed Sally, she blushing.
2) John kissed Sally, she blushing in consequence.
3) John kissed Sally, she having blushed at him.
4) He cursed at me from his car window, I honking at him.
5) He cursed at me from his car window, I having honked at him in return.
6) He cursed at me from his car window, I having honked at him.
Are these correct? Let, see an example- "Eating rice, I go to school." Here, the activities 'work' and 'go' both are done by me. I am familiar with this types of sentence. But I am not familiar with the sentences that are stated above. Would anybody like to describe about it?
I would like to suggest that you forget about this construction. They are called absolute phrases and are completely unnatural used in this way.
In the link you provided, the moderator makes this point, but not forcefully enough in my opinion. He goes on to give a couple of more natural examples:
You are using absolute constructions here in a way that they are not ordinarily used. Of course, they are not ordinarily used at all. So the question is, why is it that your absolute constructions here are so unusually unusual?
I think the main reason is that your absolute constructions are expressing part of the dynamic action of the sentence, whereas absolute constructions are typically adjectival or perfective:
- The door being locked, we climbed in through a window.
- Her guests having departed, Edith went to bed.
