Firstly, I assume you meant "&gt; 1" rather than "&gt; I".

Secondly, inside the for-each the context node is a sense element, so
count(sense) counts how many sense children that sense element has. Try:

        <xsl:for-each select="sense_area"><xsl:text> </xsl:text>
         <xsl:for-each select="sense">
          <xsl:if test="last() &gt; 1">(<xsl:number format="I"/>)</xsl:if> 
          <xsl:apply-templates />
