I suggest to get a text string using the functions from RVLinear.pas (they are better because they just insert a character in place of non-text items, except for tabs and tables) and use it to calculate this statistics.

Is it possible to count sentences instead of lines?

How do you define a sentence?

For example, if a line contains a single word, is this a sentence?

Good question. :D

A sentence ends with '.', ':' and ';'?

Line breaks inside a sentence? Pictures? Tables?

Still not clear :)

If a table is allowed inside a sentence... What if this table cells contains several sentences?

Actually, I suggest the following way of calculation. Get text using RVGetTextRange(rv, 0, RVGetTextLength(rv)) (from RVLinear unit) and calculate sentences in this text.
