Prepositions are interesting because a number of prepositions can be used as adverbs. For example, I can say, I’m behind you. Behind means the back side of something. I’m behind you means the opposite of I’m in front of you. But, the phrase I’m behind, means that late. I’m behind means I’m not on schedule.
