Learning about the parts of speech is the first step in grammar study just as learning the letters of the alphabet is the first step to being able to read and write.  From learning the parts of speech we begin to understand the use or function of words and how words are joined together to make meaningful communication.  To understand what a part of speech is, you must understand the idea of putting similar things together into groups or categories. Here is an example of how it can be helpful to know about the parts of speech.  Look at the sentence:  The man surreptitiously entered the room.   You probably don’t know the meaning of the word surreptitiously, but if you know about parts of speech, you will recognize that it is an adverb and that it tells you something about how the man entered the room.  You may still not understand the exact meaning of the word, but you can understand the whole sentence better than if you did not know about parts of speech.
