Tulugan means "a place where one sleeps". Root word is tulog
 
Sing is kanta or awit.

Aha, sorry!! I had a mistake. The English translation should be "The room is where Maria usually sleeps."
 
Is the predicate form of the following sentence right?

Tulugan ni Maria ang silid.
(The room is where Maria usually sleeps.)
 
How is the following sentence? Is it okay?
 
Tinulugan ni Maria ang silid.
(The room is where Maria usually sleeps.)

Tinutulugan ni Maria ng madalas ang silid/kwarto.
 
It is a redundant sentence (concept-wise) because silid/kuwarto are the default places where one sleeps.
