I would say it is an adverb since it is part of the verb but on the other

    If you were looking at English from the outside in, it's an adverb with
no overt marking.  From the inside out...I'm not sure.  It's kind of like the
phrase "He went home".  I have no idea how it would be described within the
realm of English grammar.  Anyone?
