Why is 'to' not used before 'home'?
I have noticed that the "to" preposition is never used when one is heading home. some examples:
I am on the way home
Would you please give me a ride home?
But for other locations, "to" preposition is used:
I am on the way to school
Would you please give me a ride to school?
Is my understanding correct? If so, why no preposition is used for home?
