Homogeneous parts of the sentences are two or more parts of the sentence having the same function and referring to the same part of the sentence. By homogeneous parts of a sentence we mean parts of the same category (two or more subjects, two or more predicates, two or more objects, etc.), standing in the same relation to other parts of the sentence (for homogeneous secondary parts we should say: standing in the same relation to the same head word). According to the older terminology, such sentences used to be termed "contracted sentences", as if they had been "contracted" put of two or more simple sentences. They are linked either by means of coordinating conjunctions or asyndetically.
