    In your example sentence, "that" is a demonstrative adjective.

    I like that. - In this sentence "that" is a demonstrative pronoun - object pronoun.

    What parts of speech can THAT be? Can THAT ever be a noun?

    "That" can be afew things. "That" is a conjuntion, as well. "That" can't be a noun, but that can be a pronoun - a demonstrative pronoun.

    That can be used for adjective clauses and noun clauses.

    That can be used in expressions, such as "that's that" or "that about does it".
