Why is it important to apply ‘PACC’ when communicating in different social situations?
It is important to apply ‘PACC’ when communicating in different social situation as we need to use different tones,expressions and words in different situations,example,if a student is being reprimanded by a teacher,the student cannot smile and give the expression that he is happy,but instead,the student should show that he is regretful to his actions and he is willing to change to become a better person. 

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?
I would first raise up my hand to indicate that I have something to say and wait for them to give me an opportunity to speak.After I am given the chance to speak,I will speak in a polite tone and tell them what I have to say,example,“excuse me but I don’t agree on this.I think ... ... ”

What are the possible repercussions if the tone and register were used wrongly?
The person who had listened to your speech may find you offensive,trying to be funny,not serious,irritating or inattentive to the situation happening around them.

  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 polite,respectful and not offending or demeaning.For content,phrases like I beg to differ,in my humble opinion, ect. ,may be used.
    3.If tone and register are use wrongly,then the end result if the discussion will be disastrous. We need to keep in my that even though we hold a different opinion we need to be polite and yet firm.We cannot hurt or demean others,in this case our friends.This in turn will damage relationships.
