Isn't this going to break horribly if the sentence being discarded is about the band Mr. Mister? Or the Orbital song "Dr. Who"? Maybe Lingua::EN::Sentences
would help. From the POD:
The Lingua::EN::Sentence module contains the function get_sentences, which splits text into its constituent sentences, based on a regular expression and a list of abbreviations (built in and given).
Certain well know exceptions, such as abreviations, may cause incorrect segmentations. But some of them are already integrated into this code and are being taken care of. Still, if you see that there are words causing the get_sentences() to fail, you can add those to the module, so it notices them.
