Hi Jeff,

two years ago there was an exhaustive summary of a similar request: http://mailman.uib.no/public/corpora/2010-August/011367.html

But check the list archives (or Google) for "sentence (splitt(er|ing)|boundar(y|ies)|detector)" or similar. There have been a couple of threads during the last years.

Regards, Sebastian
