    Prepositions/Adverbs

    I'll have a report on Prepositions overlapping with adverbs. Could you please explain how this happens. How do I distinguish one from the other?


    * {down the stairs} / downstairs
    * {under the ground} / underground
    * inside {the house} /
    * aboard {the plane}
    * underneath {the surface}

    Prepositions need an object, adverbs don't.
