英文句子中as well as的問題?

讀英文原文書,文法基礎不強...

有一句話

He himself was a very old man with shaggy white hair which grew over most

of his face as well as on his head,

後面這一句話我不太懂

which grew over most of his face as well as on his head

它們生長超過他的臉,後面的是什麼意思?

which在這裡是什麼意思?

as well as 是什麼意思? well 在這裡又是什麼意思?

已更新項目:

他自己是一個非常老的人,在他的頭頂上雜亂的白頭髮,生長覆蓋過他的臉

我這樣解讀是對的嗎?

除了頭頂外,他臉的大部分都長滿了白色濃密的毛髮。

這樣好像指他是個禿頭,頭頂外,臉上都長滿了毛髮,

as well as on his head 這句還是不太了解,

是指除了頭頂外,還是指甚至看不到頭型,或是指在他的頭頂上?

因為大家的解釋好像都有點不同,有點混淆...

    which grew over most of his face as well as on his head

    它們生長超過他的臉,後面的是什麼意思?

    除了頭頂外,他臉的大部分都長滿了白色濃密的毛髮。

    which在這裡是什麼意思?

    which = shaggy white hair

    關係代名詞which在形容詞子句裡代表先行詞shaggy white hair

    as well as 是什麼意思? well 在這裡又是什麼意思?

    這是一個片語,是用來添加額外的資訊用,不能只拆一個字well來解釋。

    意思是除了頭頂外,臉的大部分都長了白色的濃密毛髮。

    as well as所提供的信息一般己為讀者所知,句子的其餘部分提供新的信息。

    They speak French in parts of Italy as well as France.

    誰都知道法國講法語。

    頭上長毛髮是正常,臉上都長才奇怪,所以用as well as on his head來提供不希奇的信息。

    ... shaggy white hair which grew over most of his face as well as on his head

    對等相關連接詞as well as是用來讓on his head與over most of his face這兩個介系詞片語共同修飾前面的動詞grew(表示毛髮生長的位置)。

    這人不但不是禿頭,而且毛髮特多,因為動詞grew表示[長],不但頭上長,臉上也長。

    as well as在這裡相當於and.

    他(以前)是個長了一頭蓬亂白髮的老頭子,頭髮長到幾乎遮住整個臉,甚至看不到頭型

    as well as= also,too(也..、還..)

    >>which是關係代名詞= shaggy white hair

    >>前面提到他一頭亂髮,which後面就是補述什麼樣的頭髮

    >>滿布整臉、還蓋滿整個頭

    >>which grew over most of his face as well as (grew) on his head

    >>這樣應該比較好理解

    頭髮本來就長在頭上,中文上並不會特地翻譯出來~

    上面louis大師,寫的"除了..",不是指除外的意思,而是加上去的意思

    as well as 就是和、及、還有的意思
