MathGroup: please append my first response to this question with the following:

Hi There Tim,
I just thought I should mention, just in case it was not just on your pos
t that you used "[[Sin[x]]", but only one set of Brackets is necessary.  
They are in most cases reserved for the arguments of functions and are therefore
not readily substitutable with "()".  
However, with respect to achieving the result I believe you are trying to get
at, remember that Mathematica works with the complex field by default.
A simple solution to your problem involves only first loading the file
RealOnly (i.e. Real numbers) as follows:

Plot[Sin[x]^(1/3), {x, -10, 10}]
careful about () ,[]  and {} they have definite meanings in Mathematica
