    Hi kak.
    Nice article 🙂
    Kak, aq masih bingung. Kata ‘set’ kan bisa diartikan kumpulan atau paket.
    Nah, kalo ‘set’ sebagai verbal phrase dalam kalimat, gimana sih cara membedakannya dengan ‘set’ sebagai noun?
    Contohnya dalam kalimat:
    It was published Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine, just before Boston’s annual 42-kilometer race, set for Monday.
    ‘Set for monday’ nya dia ‘set’ sebagai verb atau noun ya kak?
    Mohon diberi pencerahan 🙂
