Because absolute phrases, by definition, have no main verb. They often contain participles, but often, as here, have no verb at all.This is an example sentence in a chapter teaching ABSOLUTE PHRASE:
The season nearly finished, Rebecca Lobo and Sophie Witherspoon emerged as true leader.
My question: why was needn't to be placed after season.
It's I who've penned it. Actually, I am writing a poem—I usually use absolute phrases in the poems I've written—and I'd like to modify a noun which's at the end of an absolute phrase in the poem, so I'm wondering if I'm allowed to do so, for this is my first time to use an absolute phrase that way.Where did you find the sentence, Ahmed?
It seems to me that "filled" here is a finite verb, with the conjunction "and" having been omitted for some reason.
