סַפָּק, סַפָּקִית If you have spent some time in Israel, you likely have come across one of the ways of saying “enough” – מַסְפִּיק (mahs-PEEK). The root of this word is ס.פ.ק (s.p.k).
Someone who supplies a product or provides a service fulfills a need or want, so that the recipient can say, “I have enough.” The Hebrew word for a supplier or provider is סַפָּק (sah-PAKH).
For example, סַפָּק אִנְטֶרְנֶט (sah-PAHK EEN-tehr-net) is an ISP – an Internet service provider.
A female supplier or provider is סַפָּקִית (sah-pah-KEET).
