Greenheyes has given one such context.Panjandrum, I'm curious - in which context would be "I'm at home" or "I'm home" ridiculous?
Could you kindly provide an example?
I agree with you about the second example - hence my "at least faintly" and "just a little bit"[...]the 2nd not so much.
Hmm why is the 2nd ridiculous/incoherent?
Saying it in any other context just seems inappropriate.
