For sentences, Epsilon has the Alt-e and
Alt-a keys, which move forward and backward by sentences, and the
Alt-k key, which deletes forward to the end of the current sentence.
A sentence ends with one of the characters period, !, or ?, followed
by any number of the characters
", ', ), ], followed by a
space or a newline. A sentence also ends at the end of a paragraph.
The next section describes Epsilon's notion of a paragraph.
You can set the sentence-end-double-space variable to change
Epsilon's notion of a sentence. The commands in this section will
require two spaces to mark the end of a sentence, and paragraph
filling commands will use two spaces as well. This older style also
permits Epsilon to distinguish abbreviations (followed by one space)
from the ends of sentences (two spaces), which it can't do by default.
