I'm confused about whether to say "come your home" or "come to your home." I saw a video by EnglishWale on YouTube on how to use could in a sentence. For past possibilities, he used this sentence:

I could come home today.

I think come to should be used, but I could be wrong. Please clear my doubt.

    I'm confused about whether to say "come to your home" or "come to your home." Those sentences are the same. Could you check your post again, please?

  • @stangdon I assume the title is correct and that was a typo, especially considering the rest of the question.

Your confusion comes from the fact that "home" can be used as either a noun or an adverb.

"Home" used as an adverb (merriam-webster entry 2 sense 1) doesn't need any qualifiers or prepositions. It means means "to my/our/your home." You would use it as follows:

"I'm going home tomorrow" (home = to my home)

"Are you coming home tomorrow?" (home = to our home)

"Go home." (home = to your home)

"Home" used as a noun (merriam-webster entry 1 sense 1) requires a preposition and additional adjectives/articles.

"Can I come to your home tomorrow?"

"I'm going to Sarah's home on Tuesday."

Regardless, if you're asking a question, you would need to switch the first two words of your sentence: "Could I" not "I could".
