I have several questions about the sentence in bold from the novel Atonement by Ian McEwan.
THE PLAY—for which Briony had designed the posters, programs and tickets, constructed the sales booth out of a folding screen tipped on its side, and lined the collection box in red crêpe paper—was written by her in a two-day tempest of composition, causing her to miss a breakfast and a lunch. When the preparations were complete, she had nothing to do but contemplate her finished draft and wait for the appearance of her cousins from the distant north. ”
Does tipped mean "having a specified color or material on the end or tip"?
Is tipped an adjective?
Does folding mean "able to be folded into a smaller shape"?
Does screen mean "a large, flat, white surface on which images or movies are shown"?
Does "constructed the sales booth out of a folding screen tipped on its side" mean "Briony used a folding screen whose side is tipped to construct the sales booth"?
Does out of mean "used to say what something is made from"?
Does line in the sentence "and lined the collection box in red crêpe paper" mean "to cover the inner surface of (something)"?
Does in in the sentence "and lined the collection box in red crêpe paper" have same meaning as the word "with" in the sentence "I lined the box with paper"?
Which meaning of "in" is used in the sentence "and lined the collection box in red crêpe paper"?
I looked up the word "in" in the Merriam-Webster Learner's Dictionary, but I couldn't find the definition of "in" which matches the meaning of "with" in the sentence: "I lined the box with paper".
- Does the word "tempest" mean "a situation in which people are very upset or excited"?
