What are you aiming to achieve?
You can convert it to a FLWOR expression trivially like this:
for $x in //chunklist/chunk/par/s/tok[orth/text() = "se" and
contains(disamb/ctag/text(), "KS")]

return $x

But that's hardly an improvement.

You could also convert it to

for $x in //chunklist/chunk/par/s/tok[orth/text() = "se" and
contains(disamb/ctag/text(), "KS")]

where $x/(orth/text() = "se" and contains(disamb/ctag/text(), "KS"))

return $x

but I don't think that's an improvement either.

Subject: [xquery-talk] FLWOR Expression

I tryed to convert one XPath expression that I did to a FLWOR expression,
guess what?
year...I couldn't...so if anyone could help me, I'd appreciate that.
I would like to convert this xpath (it's a xpath expression, right?):
//chunklist/chunk/par/s/tok[orth/text() = "se" and
contains(disamb/ctag/text(), "KS")]

to some FLWOR expression, with loops and stuff.

Thanks a lot,
