    nag is a prefix used in most tagalog words to change its tense into present and past tense:

    for example:

    nag + luto(cook) [root word] = nag-luto [cooked]
    nag + luluto (cook) = nag-luluto [cooking]

    to make a verb change it's form into present tense, we usually write the first syllable twice ,then add the prefix "nag" like in "nag-luluto".
