I revised some of the content and added more words to my list of Filipino repeated words (mga salitang inuulit). I incorporated the changes put forth by the Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino in their 2014 Ortograpiyang Pambansa.
Some Filipino words are formed by repeating a root word or base word. The new word obtained from such repetition or duplication would have a meaning different from that of the base word. Examples of such words are araw-araw, sabi-sabi, punit-punit, and pantay-pantay.
There are a few rules when repeating or duplicating Filipino words and these rules are included in the discussion. Several examples and their English definitions are provided for each rule.

Filipino words may be classified according to how they are formed. There are four main classifications of Filipino words: payak (root or base word), salitang maylapi (a word with one or more affixes), tambalang salita (compound word), and salitang inuulit (repeated words or words with one or more repeated syllables).
The PDF file below has two worksheets. Each worksheet asks the student to classify 40 words according to the four categories. The first two pages of the file are the blank worksheets and the last two pages are the answer keys.

Here is a list of Filipino root words that are repeated to make new words (salitang inuulit). The English definitions of these words are also included. The list is incomplete, but I hope you will find it helpful in your study. I am currently working on the list of Filipino compound words (salitang tambalan). I’ll post it in a few days.
