A game that focuses on sentences, for fun?

Is there a board game that relies on building sentences for game play, but not in a "teach people how to construct sentences" way and is not Mad Libs?

I have a love hate affair with Scrabble. It's neat to play, but the focus on stand alone words without any context to each other in meaning continues to bother me, despite playing a lot over the past few months.
Often I want to play a word that that goes with another word to create a phrase or sentence as opposed to pulling a word out the air just cause it scores a bunch of points. Ideally, it would be fun to have a Scrabble like game where you pull WORDS from a bag and use them to create interesting sentences or phrases (yes, this would need to be an impossibly big bag).
So, does a game with a focus on building coherent sentences (with a side goal of writing) exist? Preferably it would be a board game you can could play with 2-4 people. A digital version of such a game is fine too.
No, I'm not looking for Mad Libs.
