Deal with the language used, there are at least four aspects that have to be learnt: grammar, linguistics, reading, and writing. Writing is developing sentence skill, which recognizing word function in this practice is a crucial need. To avoid misplacing a word, it is important to understand one concept of part of speech to the other ones. Especially, it can be understood by the students who are interested in language. Parts of speech divided into two categories; content or lexical words (noun, verb, adjective, and adverb) and function word or grammatical word (article, pronoun, preposition, conjunction, interjection, auxiliary verb, particles, expletives, and prosentence). The purpose of this study is to know parts of speech that are used in Life’s Like That in “Reader’s Digest” magazine, and to know parts of speech that are dominantly used.
