    at home question

    Is it possible to omit the preposition at in the phrase at home or there are some limitations? For instance:
    1. My wife should be at home now.
    2. Ill be at home at 6.
    3. We spent last weekend at home.
    I mean
    1. My wife should be home now.
    2. Ill be home at 6.
    3. We spent last weekend home.

    Re: at home question

    Only the second #3 is not common in BrE. It might be used in AmE.
