    In which usage/context?

    It is a sure thing; make sure you have sure footing on the mountain - adjective

    all connotating = certain, dependable.

    I'm not sure.

    Are you for sure with this question?

    It's not a sure thing.

    We could tell your for sure if you gave us a sentence using the word, "sure."

    Re: Grammar

    Before it begins to define a word, a dictionary will tell you what part of speech that word is; and define and give examples if it can be, say, a noun and a verb, or as with 'sure', an adjective or an adverb.

    Your dictionary, or those available on this website, will give you examples of using 'sure' as an adjective, and an adverb.
