    If it is the logical operator between two items in a decision line of computer code (If A and B then...), then it is a noun. Usually, though, common usage is as a conjunction. The linking verb idea is out because the "and" does not show action, but if there are two actions with an "and" to link them, then that is what a conjunction does. The pronoun is out because "and" is not a person. An "and" in a preposition, as with the verb example, is also in a conjunction function.

    After can be a preposition, a subordinating conjunction, an adjective or even an adverb, depending on the context. It will help if you provide the sentence in question.
