I was certainly rather vague about my idea, since I haven't
anyway thought too deeply about the issue. One particular
distinguishing feature, I think, is sentence 'types' as such
in some sense. Sentence with verbs in active tense could
commonly be turned to passive. A (probably not very good)
example of another sort is e.g. 'I shall ...' vs. 'I am
going to ...'. My knowledge in grammar is poor. I hope that
knowledgeable people could use these as hints to develop
grammatically sound and really useful materials.
