Well, the English construction isn't "a noun performing a verb", it's is plus a participle. In English, they use is plus the present participle to express continuous aspect, so that they can distinguish between he is drinking and he drinks. In Swedish, we don't have that distinction, we just have the present tense dricker which covers both.
