    Yes. The root is "tagih". Basically changing to become "menagih" (prefix me- + (N) + tagih) for the main verb.

    Note: N: nasalisasi: the root that is begun by letter "K, P, T, or S" always fuses.

    In colloquial language, Indonesians sometimes omit the me- to become "nagih".

    In literature, "nagih" just could be allowed in novels for teenagers or just in part of dialogues for other kind of novels.
