Doubts on the collocation with "home"
We can say, "be home, go home, get home, arrive home, bring home and send home. However, we can't say " work home, study home, live home, or keep a person home" Rather, we should say, "work at home, study at home, stay (at) home, live at home, keep a person at home."
What are the rationales behind that?
Thanks for helping.

We do not need a preposition with home when it is used with any verb referring to direction:
- I shall be arriving / going / coming / leaving home late this evening.
