1. why is it important to apply 'PACC' when communicating in different social situations?

ans.: wen need to know who the audience, context and purpose to convey our messages in the right way or we will appear rude or strange to the audience

2. if a majority of your classmates hold a certain view about a controversial topic, while you hold an opposing view, how would convey your thoughts politely?

ans.: I would politely ask them for their attention, and after that, i will present what i think to my classmates

3. what are the possible repercussions if the tone and register were used wrongly?

ans.:we may be regarded as rude and not aware of the seriousness of the situation

  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 opposed a certain view, then i must let the class know in a polite manner. The register needs to be formal and tone should be polite and respectful and not offending or demeaning.For content, phrases like i beg to differ, in my humble opinion,etc may be used.
    3.if the tone and register are used wrongly, then the end results of the discussion will be disastrous. We need to keep in mind that even thought 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.
