I agree that de is best probably for the purposes at hand--but it might be possible to have two prefixes, right? (Thanks to Thomas for sharing his research on this dialect.) Which will be easier ultimately to train, search engines or content developers I could not guess. I personally find that some languages elude exact classification, destroy neat classification schemes, but I really do not work enough in this field at all to say  (mainly I've looked at historical forms of English and French and related, and managed to scan a few texts in Norse and Old Norse though of course I do not read anything Scandinavian at all . . . ; I've looked at a few modern languages, but I am sure that anyone who helps build search engines sees many more). --C.
