The participle may be used as an adjective to modify a noun or a pronoun; as, Dying men covered the ground. Singing birds are valuable. He, being wounded, could not walk.
It may also be used to agree with a noun which has no grammatical connection with the rest of the sentence; as in: Winter having come, we need fires. He being hurt, they brought a doctor.
