    What does mananapok mean and what is the root? It's an example sentence in a text with no context.
    Thanks!!

    Mananapok siya kung masyado mo siyang bibiruin.

    The root is sapok (to strike or hit).

    Mananapok siya kung masyado mo siyang bibiruin.

    He/She will strike if you tease him/her too much (or in English the present tense can also be applied since the statement is a general description of how this person is, or how he/she generally behaves --- He/She hits if you tease him/her too much.)
