What the difference is between CONTINUE and NEXT SENTENCE?

They appear to be similar, that is, the control goes to the next sentence in the
paragraph. But, Next Sentence would take the control to the sentence after it finds
a full stop (.). Check out by writing the following code example, one if sentence
followed by 3 display statements (sorry they appear one line here because of formatting
restrictions) If 1 > 0 then next sentence end if display ‘line 1' display
‘line 2' display ‘line 3'. *** Note- there is a dot (.) only at the
end of the last 2 statements, see the effect by replacing Next Sentence with Continue
