    1. Aunt Julia was an inch or so the taller. Her hair, drawn low over the tops of her ears, was grey; and grey also, with darker shadows, was her large flaccid face. Though she was stout in build and stood erect, her slow eyes and parted lips gave her the appearance of a woman who did not know where she was or where she was going. Aunt Kate was more vivacious. Her face, healthier than her sister’s, was all puckers and creases, like a shrivelled red apple, and her hair, braided in the same old-fashioned way, had not lost its ripe nut colour.

      Joyce uses a lot of adjectives to describe the physical features of the characters such as Lily, Aunt Julia, Aunt Kate, and Freddy, so I thought of building sentence trees to see how these descriptions are modified. However I think this may be difficult considering most of these descriptions use pronouns instead of the names.
