The lookahead set consists of the FIRST and FOLLOW sets. These are the
first tokens derivable when the nonterminal does not, or does go to
null, respectively. For LR(k), it is the first k-length token strings.


Put another way, the FOLLOW set is the set of tokens directly
derivable following any occurrence of the subject nonterminal in the
grammar. So if the nonterminal goes to null, the following tokens are
possible lookaheads.
