- I am here!
- I am home!
I frequently use the expressions, though I don't understand why they make sense, and I have recently got to be in curious how the meanings are understandable in grammatical approach, so I asked someone about it.
Someone told me that here and home are modifying 'am' because 'am' means existential itself, but I disagree on the explaining and am thinking here and home are just adverbrial complement even though they are not actually modifying anything in the sentences. (Of course, there is certain sentences in which 'am' means existential but I really don't agree in this case)
What do you think? I just want to know what here and home are modifying. (I have searched this site for this similar post, but I couldn't find out anything, so I have newly posted it.)
