    I counted the sentences per page on a few pages in 5 French-language books I had on hand (a children’s novel, a memoir, two academic books – not textbooks – and a paperback version of the Koran), and came up with the following:
    7
    9
    10
    12
    12
    15
    16
    17
    19
    25
    31
    Which gives a median of 15 and a mean of 15.7. There’s a lot of variation due to the different formats and also because some authors like to write extremely long sentences.

    Hi! I’ve just registered and will be reading Thai. I’m struggling to determine sentences per page, as the Thai language and writing system are not very clear about sentences (or words, for that matter). Check out this randomly chosen newspaper article (or any other): http://www.thairath.co.th/content/region/159683

    Thai doesn’t use punctuation marks to structure written language. It uses spaces every few (or not so few) words, which doesn’t help much either. If you explain what you need the sentence count for, I can make some assumptions and give you a number. If you’re actually after estimating the word count, I already have some statistics and can give you an average number per page (novel).

      I need sentence per page counts to calculate page counts for when you submit individual sentences.

        I won’t, I don’t know what a sentence is anyway 🙂 I’ll just read pages. If I’m the only one reading Thai and your bot can’t live without that parameter, choose a dummy value of your liking. The information density per page shouldn’t be radically different from other alphabetic scripts like, say, English.

        Thats cool, I guess I’ll set it to the english number then 🙂

    Well, for what it’s worth, two of those books are paperbacks (regular mass-market size, more or less), one’s a trade paperback that’s been rebound as hardcover (it’s larger but the text is bigger), a small hardcover (between mass market and trade size, with smallish text) and the other one would appear to originally have been paperback as well but I can’t be certain. Certainly it’s only a touch larger than a mass-market paperback, and the cover is the kind often used when rebinding.

    I suppose I should have specified as well. So they’re not all paperbacks, but they’re all about that size. The only one where the formatting is actually weird is the Koran.

    Forgot to indicate my language on Twitter, so here are the details:

    Twitter: qzchris

    Language: Chinese (traditional)

    Average sentences per page: 15 (I’m using a set of readers with a rather large font, which works out at around 15 a page)

    Looking forward to this! 😀
