    Are "For the meeting" and "at the meeting" gerund or not?

    Are "For the meeting" and "at the meeting" gerund clauses or no, please?
    1. I was late for the meeting.
    2. Why weren't you at the meeting yesterday?

    They are phrases – not clauses, and 'meeting' is not a gerund – it's a noun.
