@Lambie: Just fix it if you're bothered. English grammar is not the topic here.

@Laure: This question seems perfectly fine to me. The topic is participle clauses, whether they exist in French and possible alternatives. Since it's particularly difficult to describe a grammatical construction without referring to another language, it seems fair to reference the similar English construction. (Update: ah ok the question was updated so your comment was relevant)

This answer does not explain much about the general case but at least it is helpful for the provided examples which are more complex than they might seem. I don't understand what you guys are complaining about.

comment How did “Allez, viens!” originate?
“Viens” is an imperative. You shoud use “venez” to address a group of people or with the formal vous. And yes you can use “Allez” alone for “Come on”, or “Viens (avec moi)” alone, but it sounds more like a (friendly) request than like a suggestion such as “Let's go”.

Interesting, it seems that the two expressions use the same two verbs, just in a different order. But in fact "allez" is used as an interjection. You can't consider it as a verb (even though it certainly comes from it) because it is used for any person or group of persons, or animals for it matters.
