1.Why is it important to apply 'PACC' when communicating in different social situations? Answer:It is important to apply it so that we can ensure that the audience we are speaking to understand what we are talking about. 2.If a majority of your classmates hold a certain view about a controversial topic,while you hold an opposing view, how would you convey your thoughts politely? Tell your view in a polite manner and not in a rude one so that your audience don't get angry at you. 3.What are the possible repercussions if the tone & register were used wrongly? If tone and register is used wrongly, what you are trying to convey will end up in a different manner and your audience will misunderstand it.

  1. 1) It is important to apply PACC because the register(formal or informal) will depend on the audience.Tone depends on purpose and context.So, we will not be able to communicate effectively.
    2) If I oppose a certain view then I must let the class know in a polite manner.The register needs to be formal and tone should be respectful, polite and not offending or demeaning.For content, phrases like'I beg to differ, in my humble opinion etc may be used.
    3) If tone and register are used wrongly,then the end result of the discussion will be disastrous.We need to keep in mind that even though we hold a different opinion, we need to be polite yet firm.We cannot hurt or demean others, in this case our friends.This in turn will damage relationships.
