The understanding of PACC to me

Bhakti s107 (1)

Question 1) Why is it important to apply 'PACC' when communicating in different social situations?

Answer 1) When you apply PACC while communicating in different social situations you will be able to understand what you say to the other person more easily and the listener will be able to understand you also. Thus, you two will be able to communicate with your friend more easily.

Question 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?

Answer 2) I would add in polite and decent word to my speech in opposing my classmates. I would use words like 'might', 'shall', 'should', 'could' and 'would'. I will also first listen to my classmates point of views  and then compare it with mine so that they are able to understand me better.

Question 3) What are the possible repercussions if the tone and register were used wrongly?

Answer 3) If the tone and register were used wrongly, the audience would think that the speaker is impolite and the audience will then have bad thoughts about the speaker in their minds. Thus, the speaker should always take note of their tone and register while doing speeches at a grand function, to a group of friends or even when presenting a presentation.

    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 the tone should be respectful 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.
