In this case, the following templates should do the trick:

<xsl:template match="/">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="math/msup" />

<xsl:template match="msup">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="mrow/msub/mi[1]" />

<xsl:template match="mrow/msub/mi">
  <xsl:value-of select="ancestor::msup/mi" />
  <xsl:text> power </xsl:text>
  <xsl:value-of select="." />
  <xsl:text> power base </xsl:text>
  <xsl:value-of select="following-sibling::mi[1]" />

I think you will find the 'ancestor::msup/mi' XPath expression particularly
helpful. The above example only works for this specific case, so I
definitely hope there is at least some other way to distinguish between the
types of operation (i.e. power).

Hope this helps! (If not, don't hesitate to re-post)
