Is it really your intent that the "dem." prefix be kept only when the suffix is "x" or "y"? Or is your intent that the prefix be kept when var contains only a single "word"? Or only when the suffix is a single letter? Or is it a typo and you meant to keep the prefix all the time (or perhaps none of the time)?
