Abstract

They didn't need to have information chopped up into sentences. This is because the whole concept of a sentence belongs to a literate world. In speech we use units called clauses (roughly speaking there's one verb to every clause). If you tape yourself having a conversation, you'll find that you're not really using sentences at all. Instead you use strings of loosely connected clauses. Now [Milton] and his contemporaries were trained to keep lots of clauses in their head at one time.
