Well, I didn't use Turtle shortcuts, so, yes, we're in the intersection of Turtle and N-Triples, but it's still Turtle. I guess that's ok.

reworded that as follows, does that work for you?

<p>Just like in the earlier SPARQL1.0 specification  [<a href="#SPARQL10-Query">SPARQL-Query</a>] from 2008, complex queries may include union, optional query parts, and filters; new features like value aggregation, path expressions, nested queries, etc. have been added in SPARQL1.1. Apart from SELECT queries - which return variable bindings - SPARQL supports ASK queries  - i.e. boolean "yes/no" queries - and CONSTRUCT queries - which allow to construct new RDF graphs from a query result; all the new query language features of SPARQL1.1 are likewise usable in ASK and CONSTRUCT queries.

good catch (that was actually a follow-up error from the a#me typo you discovered earlier)!
