Here is the proposed rewording:

fn:substring( $sourceString  as xs:string?, 
$startingLoc  as xs:double?) as xs:string? 

fn:substring( $sourceString  as xs:string?, 
$startingLoc  as xs:double?, 
$length  as xs:double?) as xs:string? 

Summary: Returns the portion of the value of $sourceString beginning at the 
position indicated by the value of $startingLoc and continuing for the number 
of characters indicated by the value of $length. The characters returned do 
not extend beyond $sourceString. If $startingLoc is zero or negative, only 
those characters in positions greater than zero are returned. If $startingLoc 
is the empty sequence an error FORG--99 is raised. If $length is the empty 
sequence, the length is considered to be 0 and the empty sequence is being 
returned.

More specifically, the three argument version of the function returns the 
characters in $sourceString whose position $p obeys:

fn:round($startingLoc) <= $p < fn:round($startingLoc) + fn:round($length)

The two argument version of the function assumes that $length is infinite and 
returns the characters in $sourceString whose position $p obeys:

fn:round($startingLoc) <= $p < fn:round(INF)
