You can use the standard emacs commands M-a and M-e to use through the
document by sentence. You can move by paragraph with M-{ and M-}. Look
at the emacs info page for more movement commands.

Depending on where you live, you may want to put the following into
your .emacs file, so that sentences are not required to have 2 spaces
afger the period:

;; End sentences with single whitespace
(setq sentence-end "[.?!][]\"')]*\\($\\|\t\\| \\)[ \t\n]*")
