I’m home

“I am home.” Does “home” function here as a noun or an adverb?

At and to are not adverbs but prepositions.

It's a noun that looks like an adverb because you've dropped out 'now at' or 'here now at' from the sentence.

Great. I've been confused myself over this topic, and here I'm facing two different answers just again. But yeah, it helps, as long as we get the meaning I think it's fine either way :D

Does it matter?
