Finding sentence delimiters / abbreviations is usually done with a list of
known abbreviations, but there are also approaches that test if a dot and
its preceeding word form a collocation, thus are dependent and can be
treated as an abbreviation...
But still, you can have abbreviations at the end of a sentence and thus
have an ambiguous dot...
If the OP does not need to do serious natural language processing, he/she
can nevertheless use a rather naive definition of "sentence".
PS: If thats not enough, you may start to wonder whether "The White House"
should not form a word...
