I am analysing text with respect to its argument structure (conclusion supported by reasons, each supported by evidence). During this analysis it would have been very usefull to have each sentence numbered, for easy reference. Hence, I need a function that EITHER inserts an number at the start of each sentence, with the number surrounded by brackets or symbols clearly distinguishing it from the rest of the text, OR insert the sentence number(s) for each text line in the margin of the text.
Any idea of how I could number the sentences in a text?
Thanks for any suggestions or tips!
